outer membrane of Yersinia pestis by Richard Peters Darveau Download PDF EPUB FB2

Yersinia pestis. Yersinia pestis (formerly called Pasteurella pestis) is a short gram-negative rod that causes plague. It is a disease of rodents (squirrels, rabbits, rats) that is transmitted to humans by flea bites or by person-to-person contact through aerosol inhalation.

Yersinia pestis; A scanning electron These T3SS-injected proteins, called Yersinia outer proteins (Yops), include Yop B/D, which form pores in the host cell membrane and have been linked to cytolysis. The YopO, YopH, YopM, YopT, YopJ, and YopE are injected into the cytoplasm of host cells by T3SS into the pore created in part by YopB and arleenthalerphotography.com: Gammaproteobacteria.

The plasmid pPCP1 is specific for Y. pestis, and fragments of the pla gene have been applied as DNA probes to detect Y. pestis from environmental as well as medical history samples [7,8]. Pla is a member of the omptin family of outer membrane proteases identified in several Gram-negative bacterial species that infect mammals or plants or both.

Whole cell protein and outer membrane protein (OMP) extracts were compared for their ability to differentiate and delineate the correct database organism to an experimental sample and for the degree of dissimilarity to the nearest neighbor database organism strains.

These extracts were isolated from pathogenic and nonpathogenic strains of Yersinia pestis and Escherichia coli using Cited by: Yersinia pestis pH 6 antigen: genetic, biochemical, and virulence characterization of a protein involved in the pathogenesis of bubonic plague.

Yersinia pseudotuberculosis is a Gram-negative bacterium that causes Far East scarlet-like fever in humans, who occasionally get infected zoonotically, most often through the food-borne route.

Animals are also infected by Y. arleenthalerphotography.com bacterium is urease arleenthalerphotography.comlty: Infectious disease. Yersinia pseudotuberculosis and Yersinia pestis and suggest that there is a common outer membrane pattern associated with pathogenicity.

The yersiniae are gram-negative bacteria that belong to the. Many Gram-negative bacteria produce outer membrane vesicles (OMVs) during cell growth and division, and some bacterial pathogens deliver virulence factors to the host via the release of OMVs during infection.

Here we show that Yersinia pestis, the causative agent of the disease plague, produces and releases native OMVs under physiological conditions. These OMVs, approximately nm in. Yersinia pestis enters host cells and evades host defenses, in part, through interactions between Yersinia pestis proteins and host membranes.

One such interaction is through the type III secretion system, which uses a highly conserved and ordered complex for Yersinia pestis outer membrane effector protein translocation called the injectisome.

The plasminogen activator protease (Pla) of Yersinia pestis is a critical virulence determinant in the progression of both bubonic and pneumonic plague. A member of the omptin family of Gram-negative transmembrane proteases, Pla forms a conserved β-barrel fold in the bacterial outer membrane which permits the interaction of the protease with Cited by: OVERVIEW.

Plague or black death is an infection of rodents caused by Yersinia pestis and accidentially transmitted to humans by the bite of infected fleas. The disease follows urban and sylvatic cycles and is manifested in bubonic and pneumonic forms [note: bubo is derived from a Greek word for groin].

Yersinia pestis contains 29 different Ysc proteins which assemble to form a pore in the inner and outer membrane of the bacteria. Once the bacterium makes contact with a cell, certain translocator Yops form a pore and then go across the channel through the bacterial and eukaryotic membranes to obtain access to the cell's arleenthalerphotography.com: Gamma Proteobacteria.

This and the emergence of antibiotic resistant Y. pestis in recent years highlight the urgency to understand the mechanisms of pathogenicity and the need to devise new strategies for the prevention and control of human pathogenic Yersinia. In this book, leading Yersinia researchers review the hot topics in the systems biology and control of.

Ail is an outer membrane protein from Yersinia pestis that is highly expressed in a rodent model of bubonic plague, making it a good candidate for vaccine development.

composed of two layers. Inner peptidoglycan layer is much thinner than the gram-positive cell walls. Outside the peptidoglycan layer is an additional outer membrane containing proteins, phospholipids, and lipopolysaccharide (LPS). LPS contains antigenic O-specific polysaccharide, a core polysaccharide, and an inner lipid A (endotoxin).

One such interaction is through the type III secretion system, which uses a highly conserved and ordered complex for Yersinia pestis outer membrane effector protein translocation called the arleenthalerphotography.com: Yamashita, Satoshi.

The natural reservoir of Y. pestis are rodents and thus the organism is a zoonotic. Humans can be infected either through the bite of a flea which has taken a blood meal from an infected rodent or through contaminated aerosolized droplets.

Rather than hiding from our immune system cells, Yersinia pestis meets them head-on. It invades white blood cells, and suppresses the body’s ability to mount an immune response.

The bacteria can also kill certain immune cells by injecting proteins directly inside that form pores in.
