Serotype differences and lack of biofilm formation characterize Yersinia pseudotuberculosis
infection of the Xenopsylla cheopis flea vector of Yersinia pestis.
The 102-kilobase pgm locus of Yersinia pestis: sequence analysis and comparison of selected regions among different Yersinia pestis and Yersinia pseudotuberculosis
announced today that it has received a biodefense partnership grant award from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) to analyze the genomes of approximately 150 Yersinia pestis and Yersinia pseudotuberculosis
To the Editor: Illness caused by Yersinia pseudotuberculosis
is mainly characterized by fever and acute abdominal pain due to mesenteric lymphadenitis that mimics appendicitis.
Yersinia pestis, which causes bubonic plague, is a relatively recent offshoot, perhaps only 1,500 to 20,500 years old, of the less dangerous Yersinia pseudotuberculosis
, Mark Achtman of the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin and his colleagues report in the Nov.
Cases of Yersinia pseudotuberculosis
infection increased in France during the winter of 2004-05 in the absence of epidemiologic links between patients or strains.
The researchers base their conclusions on studies of two strains of bacteria, Yersinia pestis, which causes plague, and Yersinia pseudotuberculosis
, which confers resistance to plague but causes only mild symptoms.
Called invasin by its discoverers, the newly described protein is necessary for the bacterium Yersinia pseudotuberculosis
to penetrate epithelial cells, say scientists from Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston and Stanford University School of Medicine.
Two cases of community-acquired septicemia caused by serotype-O1 Yersinia pseudotuberculosis
were diagnosed in middle-aged, HIV-positive, immunodeficient patients during an 8-month period.
Homology with a repeated Yersinia pestis DNA sequence IS100 correlates with pesticin sensitivity in Yersinia pseudotuberculosis
