La sensibilidad y especificidad de las pruebas se calcularon con respecto a los bovinos infectados y sanos de Brucella, segun el metodo descrito por Hop et al., 2016).
La alta similitud implica que puede existir una reaccion cruzada entre ambas proteinas al ser evaluadas con sueros de animales infectados con especies de Brucella que expresen esta proteina.
El valor de corte de cada antigeno en la prueba de ELISA (Figura 4) se calculo como la media especifica de las DO de 32 sueros libres de Brucella usados como control mas dos desviaciones estandar.
This erythritol is playing crucial role in the localization of Brucella pathogens to these sites and successive addition of large amounts of secondary bacteria, which causes abortion.
Intracellular Trafficking: Following the Brucella being engulfed by macrophages or invading into non- phagocytic cells, it occupies inside a membrane-bound compartment called as Brucella-containing vacuole (BCV) and then convert into a replicative compartment or brucellosome (Kohler et al., 2002).
Some BCVs are conserving internalized Brucella freight from endocytic compartments and are binding with rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER), where act as niche for intracellular replication of Brucella (Pizarro-Cerda et al., 2000), constituting a distinctive aspect of the intracellular Brucella lifestyle (Fig.
Simultaneamente a este estudio, se reporto en Colombia el primer caso de trasmision de Brucella canis a un humano que no presentaba sintomatologia clinica, pero que mantenia estrecho contacto con los animales infectados.
Aunque en este estudio se aislo una bacteria morfologicamente compatible con Brucela, en uno de los animales seropositivos, la morfologia y patron bioquimico no fueron consistentes con Brucella canis, hecho que se ve apoyado por los hallazgos histopatologicos.
