Surveillance Report: Annual Epidemiological Report for 2016: Yersiniosis

Source: European Union, European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). Published: 12/2018. This five-page report is based on the data for 2016 about cases of yersiniosis retrieved from The European Surveillance System (TESSy) on February 21, 2018. In 2016, 28 European Union/European Economic Area Member States reported yersiniosis data, three of which had partial population surveillance coverage. These countries reported 6,918 confirmed cases.

Publication date: Available online 15 March 2019Source: LWTAuthor(s): Abdus Sobhan, Jinyoung Lee, Mi-Kyung Park, Jun-Hyun OhAbstractThe goal of this research was to develop a rapid single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT)-based biosensor method and to employ it to a Kimchi product for Yersinia enterocolitica detection. A SWCNT-based biosensor was fabricated with SWCNTs immobilized with anti-Yersinia antibody (pAbs) through hybridization of 1-pyrenebutanoic acid succinimidyl ester (PBASE) as a linker. The resistance difference (ΔR) was calculated via linear sweep voltammetry (LSV) using a potentiostat. The specific bindi...

In this study a comparative RNA-seq-based transcriptomic approach was used to identify serotype/isolate-specific differences in the transcriptome of the isolates YeO:8 8081v and YeO:3 Y1 under infection-relevant conditions. This strategy allowed the generation of the first in-depth single-nucleotide resolution transcriptome of Y. enterocolitica, revealed major differences in the temperature- and growth phase-dependent expression profiles, and led to the discovery of changes that modulate transcripts levels of important virulence-relevant traits. Additionally a comprehensive map of transcriptional start sites for Y. enteroc...

Publication date: Available online 9 March 2019Source: Journal of Microbiological MethodsAuthor(s): Reinhard Sting, Tobias Eisenberg, Maja HrubenjaAbstractAnalyses of short subunit gene sequences have been established for taxonomic classification and identification of bacteria and fungi. To produce partial bacterial ribosomal 16S rRNA and rpoB and fungal ribosomal ITS/LSU gene sequences for DNA sequencing, real-time PCR assays supplemented with the nucleic acid stain SYBR Green were created. Generation of PCR products was monitored based on amplification and melting curves. The PCR products were subsequently subjected to S...

The low permeability of porin channels is the possible reason for Gram-negative bacterial resistance to antibiotics. The adaptive accumulation of lysophosphatidylethanolamine (LPE) inYersinia pseudotuberculosis induces conformational changes of OmpF porin that may hinder the transport of antibiotics through this channel. The present study was aimed to test whether the changes in LPE content affect the resistance of bacteria to ampicillin. The addition of glucose to the culture medium was shown to simultaneously increase the level of LPE and minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) for ampicillin ofY. pseudotuberculosis cells...

This study represents the most comprehensive comparative outer membrane proteomic 8 analysis of Y. ruckeri to date, encompassing isolates of different biotypes, serotypes, OMP-9 types and hosts of origin and provides insights into the potential roles of these diverse proteins 10 in host-pathogen interactions. The study has identified key OMPs likely to be involved in 11 disease pathogenesis and makes a significant contribution to furthering our understanding of 12 the cell-surface composition of this important fish pathogen that will be relevant to the 13 development of improved vaccines and therapeutics. 14.

Publication date: Available online 22 February 2019Source: PlasmidAuthor(s): Mitchell W. Pesesky, Rayna Tilley, David A.C. BeckAbstractMosaic plasmids, plasmids composed of genetic elements from distinct sources, are associated with the spread of antibiotic resistance genes. Transposons are considered the primary mechanism for mosaic plasmid formation, though other mechanisms have been observed in specific instances. The frequency with which mosaic plasmids have been described suggests they may play an important role in plasmid population dynamics. Our survey of the confirmed plasmid sequences available from complete and d...
