GSE141446 Transcriptomic profiles of host epithelial cells in response to actin rearrangement induced by atypical enteropathogenic Escherichia coli

Contributors : Fernando H Martins ; Ashwani Kumar ; Chao Xing ; Vanessa Sperandio ; Waldir P EliasSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Homo sapiensAtypical enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (aEPEC) is amongst the leading causes of diarrheal disease worldwide. The colonization of the gut mucosa by aEPEC results in actin pedestal formation at the site of bacterial attachment. This cytoskeletal rearrangement is triggered by the interaction between the bacterial adhesin intimin and its receptor Tir, which is translocated through the type three secretion system, to the host cell. While some aEPEC require tyrosine phosphorylation of Tir and recruitment of the host Nck to trigger actin polymerization, certain aEPEC strains, whose Tir is not phosphorylated, rely on the effector EspFu for efficient actin remodeling. To understand how the host responds to these different actin polymerization signaling pathways, we analyzed gene expression changes in epithelial cells infected with pedestal-forming aEPEC strains using high-throughput RNA sequencing (RNA-seq).

Abstract Motivation: Most modern seed-and-extend NGS read mappers employ a seeding scheme that requires extracting t non-overlapping seeds in each read in order to find all valid mappings under an edit distance threshold of t. As t grows, this seeding scheme forces mappers to use more and shorter seeds, which increases the seed hits (seed frequencies) and therefore reduces the efficiency of mappers. Results: We propose a novel seeding framework, context-aware seeds (CAS). CAS guarantees finding all valid mappings but uses fewer (and longer) seeds, which reduces seed frequencies and increases efficiency o...

Abstract Water scarcity is emerging as a major problem in water stressed regions such as Middle East countries which highlights the importance of agricultural reuse of wastewater as a valid alternative source. However, consumption of wastewater-irrigated crops has been implicated as a vehicle for transmission of bacterial infections such as campylobacteriosis. Understanding and minimizing public health threats associated with agricultural reuse of treated wastewater (TWW) are crucial elements in sustainable water resource management. To address this need, the present study was carried out to determine Campylobacte...

Authors: Zhong Y, Zheng C, Zheng JH, Xu SC Abstract OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between the changes in intestinal flora and the occurrence of osteoporosis in rats with inflammatory bowel disease and the improvement effect of probiotics. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 100 Sprague Dawley (SD) model rats with colitis were selected as research objects. All rats were randomly divided into two groups, including: bowel disease group and osteoporosis group, with 50 rats in each group. Stool samples were collected from all rats, and Lactobacillus, Escherichia coli and Bifidoba...

ConclusionsSGB2 is associated with oralization of the gut microbiome; intestinal inflammation and microbiome changes were associated with gastrointestinal symptoms. These novel findings may open gut microbiome as a new target for therapy to improve quality of life and general patient health in long-term survivors after SGB2.

Shiga toxin (Stx)-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) O157:H7 is an enteric pathogen that causes life-threatening disease in humans, with cattle being major natural reservoirs. A group of STEC O157:H7 with a dramatic combination of high virulence potentials and super-shedder bovine origin have been isolated. Here, an STEC O157:H7 isolate, JEONG-1266, was analyzed by comparative genomics, stx genotyping, and phenotypic analyses. The phylogenetic typing and whole-genome comparison consistently showed that JEONG-1266 is genetically close to EC4115 (one of 2006 Spinach outbreak isolates) and SS17 (an isolate from super-shedder c...

Noroviruses are the main causative agents of acute viral gastroenteritis, but the host factors that restrict their replication remain poorly identified. Guanylate-binding proteins (GBPs) are interferon (IFN)-inducible GTPases that exert broad antiviral activity and are important mediators of host defenses against viral infections. Here, we show that both IFN-γ stimulation and murine norovirus (MNV) infection induce GBP2 expression in murine macrophages. Results from loss- and gain-of-function assays indicated that GBP2 is important for IFN-γ–dependent anti-MNV activity in murine macrophages. Ectopic expre...
