FRANCISELLA TULARENSIS – A DECEITFUL PATHOGEN

Francisella tularensis is an intracellular bacterial pathogen which causes a potentially lethal disease named tularemia. Some studies have been conducted to describe and identify the virulence factors of F. tularensis. This pathogen is able to infect a variety of cells of various hosts, including wild animals, especially rabbits, hares and rodents, and humans. This may suggest that genes of F. tularensis must adapt to many different intraorganismal environments. Still, little is known about the

As soon as the biosentinels bind with the target pathogen through the phagebased biomolecular recognition, a change in the biosentinel's resonant frequency occurs, and thereby the presence of the target pathogen can be detected. Detection of Bacillus anthracis spores under stagnant flow conditions was demonstrated.

FROM A COMMENSAL TO A PATHOGEN – TWO FACES OFSTAPHYLOCOCCUS EPIDERMIDIS

Staphylococcus epidermidis is a commensal organism and the most abundant constituent of the healthy human skin and mucous membrane microbiota. It is well adapted to colonize and evade human antimicrobial barriers. Staphylococcus epidermidis not only competes with potentially harmful pathogens, but also produces a plethora of proteins supporting host natural defenses. At the same time, Staphylococcus epidermidis is an opportunistic pathogen recognized as one of the leading causes of healthcare

Most studies investigating the relationship between the host and bacteria, tend to focus on the cell types that comprise the biological barriers, signaling events within the host and the virulence factors of the pathogen, which are involved in the initial phase of the disease (Benjamin et al. 2011). In this work, a primary culture of

For this reason the search for new, alternative therapies is an urgent task. Silver nanoparticles seem to be the promising antibacterial agent. Minimal inhibitory concentration of silver nanoparticles was determined. Sublethal

Root-knot nematodes (RKN) parasitize a wide range of host plants and have a global distribution. They are considered the most important group of plant-parasitic nematodes (Jones et al., 2013). Several Meloidogyne species can attack coffee plants, but only Meloidogyne exigua (Goeldi, 1892) has a significant impact on coffee production. This pathogen is the most widely distributed nematode in the coffee production areas in Central and South America (Campos and Villain, 2005), with estimated yield

Campylobacter spp. was found in 64% of meat samples. The highest prevalence of this pathogen was detected for duck meat. On average 80% of duck samples were contaminated with Campylobacter spp. The counts of Campylobacter spp. in positive samples remained under ten colony forming units per gram

Depends on the rice variety, it generally causes 7.3 to 29% disease rate in the field, and resulted in up to 39.3% yield loss (Wu, 2011). Leaf tips of the A. besseyi-infected plant turned white, and usually extended 3 to 5 cm long. While the nematodes gradually took the majority space within the seed, the

The effect of two QTLs for resistance to Meloidogyne incognita in cotton on nematode egression from roots

Melodoigyne incognita, the Southern root-knot nematode, causes greater total damage than any other pathogen of cotton in the United States and is responsible for losses of $147 million/year in addition to the cost of nematicides used to manage the nematode (Lawrence et al., 2015). The infective second-stage juveniles (J2) are motile and penetrate into the root system to establish feeding sites. If a feeding site is successfully established, the nematode ceases movement and progresses to
