Salmonella enterica serovars often have a broad host range, and some cause both gastrointestinal and systemic disease. But the serovars Paratyphi A and Typhi are restricted to humans and cause only systemic disease. It has been estimated that Typhi arose in the last few thousand years. The sequence and microarray analysis of the Paratyphi A genome indicates that it is similar to the Typhi genome but suggests that it has a more recent evolutionary origin. Both genomes have independently accumulat ...[more]
Project description:Screen for differences in gene expression between a parental Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis strain (ATCC4931) and an adapted strain with increased resistance to the widely used antimicrobial sanitizer dodecyltrimethylammonium chloride (DTAC) Time course of comparative gene expression changes between log phase parental and adapted Enteritidis strains after 0, 10, 30 and 150 min of exposure to 50% of the respective MIC of DTAC.
