In this study, a series of unsymmetrical N,N-disubstituted benzimidazolium salts were synthesized as N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) (2a-2j) and their AgI complexes. Their structures were characterized by elemental analyses, 1H and 13C nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and infrared (IR) spectroscopy techniques. Further, both the salts and their silver(I)-NHC complexes have been evaluated for their potential antibacterial properties against a panel of bacterial strains namely, Micrococcus luteus, Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella Typhimurium, Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The results show that silver comple...

The objective of this work was to carry out a bibliographic survey of secondary metabolites isolated from the Velloziaceae family, creating a bank of compounds. After the bank was created, four prediction models for potentially active compounds against pathogenic microorganisms (Candida albicans, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Salmonella sp.) were obtained trying to identify which metabolites would be more active against the strains. Four sets of compounds with known activity for microorganisms were selected for the construction of predictive models from the CHEMBL database. Another bank with 163 unique molec...

Chagas disease caused by the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi is endemic in 21 Latin American countries and the southern United States and now is spreading into several other countries due to migration. Despite the efforts to control the vector throughout the Americas, currently, there are almost seven million infected people worldwide, causing ~10,000 deaths per year, and 70 million people at risk to acquire the infection. Chagas disease treatment is restricted only to two parasiticidal drugs, benznidazole and nifurtimox, which are effective during the acute and early infections but have not been found to be as effect...

Molecular methods, particularly those based on real-time PCR (qPCR), have become a popular approach to detect pathogens in food samples. This technique may take advantage of hydrolysis fluorescent probes for increased specificity. Even though suitable, this approach loses the capacity of performing result confirmation by melt curve analysis. In the current study, we developed an alternative approach, combining fluorescent probes along with an intercalating dye (SYBR Green) in order to simultaneously detect, and confirm the result, of two foodborne pathogens (Salmonella spp. and Escherichia coli O157). This new approach nam...

Authors: Casanovas-Moreno-Torres I, Gutiérrez-Soto B, Modovan TD, Expósito-Ruiz M, Navarro-Marí JM, Gutiérrez-Fernández J Abstract The activity of azithromycin against enteritis-producing agents other than Campylobacter spp. was studied. The susceptibility to azithromycin, through gradient test, of 88 clinical isolates (51 Salmonella spp., 23 Aeromonas spp., 10 Shigella sonnei and 4 Yersinia enterocolitica) for one year was studied prospectively. The results were compared with the activity of ampicillin, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole and ciprofloxacin by microdilution. For azithro...

AbstractWe sought to determine the relative value of conventional molecular methods and whole-genome sequencing (WGS) for subtypingSalmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis recovered from 2000 to 2015 in Tunisia and to investigate the genetic diversity of this serotype. A total of 175Salmonella Enteritidis isolates were recovered from human, animal, and foodborne outbreak samples. Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE), multiple locus variable-number tandem repeat analysis (MLVA), and whole-genome sequencing were performed. Eight pulsotypes were detected for all isolates with PFGE (DI  = 0.518). Forty-fiveSalm...

AbstractSalmonella is a well-known food-borne pathogen causing disease in humans and animals worldwide. Peptidyl-prolyl isomerases (PPIases) catalyse thecis –trans isomerisation of prolyl bound, which is a slow and rate-limiting step of protein folding. Here, we present the biochemical and molecular characterisation of a novel multi-domain parvulin-type, PPIases-C from the pathogenic bacteriaSalmonella Typhimurium, annotated as rPpiC. The recombinant plasmid PpiC_pET28c was used for protein induction using  1.5 mM concentration of isopropyl-β-D-thiogalactopyranoside at 30 °C. Subsequently, the...

Salmonella enterica is a common foodborne illness in the United States and globally. An increasing number of Salmonella infections are resistant to antibiotics, and many of the genes responsible for those resistances are carried by plasmids. Plasmids are important mediators of horizontal gene exchange, which could potentially increase the spread of antibiotic resistance (AR) genes. Twenty-eight different incompatibility groups of plasmids have been described in Enterobacteriaceae. Incompatibility groups differ in their accessory gene content, replication mechanisms, and their associations with Salmonella serotypes and anim...
