SGI-4 in Monophasic Salmonella Typhimurium ST34 Is a Novel ICE That Enhances Resistance to Copper

A multi drug resistant Salmonella enterica 4,[5],12:i- of sequence type 34 (monophasic S. Typhimurium ST34) is a current pandemic clone associated with livestock, particularly pigs, and numerous outbreaks in the human population. A large genomic island, termed SGI-4, is present in the monophasic Typhimurium ST34 clade and absent from other S. Typhimurium strains. SGI-4 consists of 87 open reading frames including sil and pco genes previously implicated in resistance to copper (Cu) and silver, and multiple genes predicted to be involved in mobilisation and transfer by conjugation. SGI-4 was excised from the chromosome, circularised, and transferred to recipient strains of S. Typhimurium at a frequency influenced by stress induced by mitomycin C, and oxygen tension. The presence of SGI-4 was associated with increased resistance to Cu, particularly but not exclusively under anaerobic conditions. The presence of silCBA genes, predicted to encode an RND family efflux pump that transports Cu from the periplasm to the external milieu, was sufficient to impart the observed enhanced resistance to Cu, above that commonly associated with S. Typhimurium isolates. The presence of these genes resulted in the absence of Cu-dependent induction of pco genes encoding multiple proteins linked to Cu homeostasis, also present on SGI-4, suggesting that the system effectively limits the Cu availability in the periplasm, but did not affect SodCI-dependent macrophage survival.

The objective of this work was to extend the method to quantify both Metal-GLY and free metal ion forms of various metals at low inclusion levels. A 50/50 w/w mix of corn flour and soybean meal was used as feed. Copper-glycinate( Cu-GLY), Manganese-glycinate (Mn-GLY) and Zinc-glycinate (Zn-GLY) complexes (provided by Pancosma SA) were used for in feed inclusions. The feed metal background concentrations and species repartitions were assessed. Cu-GLY was spiked on feed at levels matching 5, 15 and 45 mg/kg, corresponding to metal concentrations of 1.2, 3.6 and 10.8 mg/kg. Mn-GLY and Zn-GLY were spiked at 15, 45 and 100 mg/k...

In this study, a novel Cu-V bimetallic catalyst (CuVOx) with abundant surface defects was successfully synthesized by hydrothermal method. Degradation experiment of emerging pollutant fluconazole confirmed that CuVOx exhibited higher catalytic activity, wider pH applicability and more satisfactory reusability than monometallic copper compounds. Electron paramagnetic resonance and radical quenching tests indicated that surface hydroxyl groups play a crucial role in the degradation of contaminants. By the introduction of vanadium into copper-based materials, several surface properties that are closely related to the reactivi...
