BACKGROUND: Bacterial genomes are mosaic structures composed of genes present in every strain of the same species (core genome), and genes present in some but not all strains of a species (accessory genome). The aim of this study was to compare the genetic diversity of core and accessory genes of a Salmonella enterica subspecies enterica serovar Typhimurium (Typhimurium) population isolated from food-animal and human sources in four regions of Mexico. Multilocus sequence typing (MLST) and macror ...[more]
Project description:FabR ChIP-chip on Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Typhimurium SL1344 using anti-Myc antibody against strain with chromosomally 9Myc-tagged FabR (IP samples) and wildtype strain (mock IP samples) Overall design: IP sample (using anti-Myc antibody against Salmonella Typhimurium SL1344 strain encoding chromosomally 9Myc-tagged FabR) and control mock IP sample (using anti-Myc antibody against Salmonella Typhimurium SL1344 wildtype strain) were labeled with Cy5 and hybridized against a common genomic DNA reference, labeled with Cy3, on 2 S. Typhimurium LT2 whole genome tiling arrays
Project description:Investigation of whole genome gene expression level changes in a Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium UK1 delta-iacP mutant, compared to the wild-type strain. IacP is resoponsible for the secretion of virulence effector proteins via the type III secretion system, thereby contributing the virulence of S. Typhimurium. The mutants analyzed in this study are further described in Kim et al. 2011. Role of Salmonella Pathogenicity Island 1 Protein IacP in Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium Pathogenesis. Infection and Immunity 79(4):1440-1450 (PMID 21263021). A chip study using total RNA recovered from two separate wild-type cultures of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium UK1 and two separate cultures of a mutant strain, Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium UK1 delta-iacP. Each chip measures the expression level of 4,302 genes from Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium.
Project description:Investigation of whole genome gene expression level changes in a Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium 14028 delta GidA mutant The mutant described in this study is further analyzed in Shippy, D. C., N. M. Eakley, P. N. Bochsler, and A. A. Fadl. 2011. Biological and virulence characteristics of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium following deletion of glucose-inhibited division (gidA) gene. Microb Pathog. A single chip study using three separate cultures of wild-type Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium 14028 and three separate cultures of a single mutant, delta GidA Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium 14028.
Project description:We mapped the genome-wide binding of C-terminally FLAG-tagged AraC in S. enterica subsp. enterica serovar Typhimurium strain 14028s using ChIP coupled with deep sequencing (ChIP-seq). We identified five putative target loci for AraC: upstream of araB/araC, araE, araJ, STM14_0178, and within sseD.
Project description:Transcriptional profiling of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium SL1344 cells comparing wildtype with ΔfabR mutant. Salmonella strains were cultured under free-living TSB conditions (TSB 1/20, 200 rpm, 25 °C) for 6h (ca. 2 x 108 cells/ml). Overall design: two strain experiment. One biological repeat for each strain. Hybridizations were performed in color flip.
Project description:Bifidobacterium thermophilum RBL67 (RBL67), a human fecal isolate and promising probiotic candidate, showed antagonistic and protective effects against Salmonella and Listeria in vitro. However, the underlying mechanisms fostering these health-related effects remain unknown. Therefor the transcriptome response of RBL67 and Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Typhimurium N-15 (N-15) in co-culture compared to the response in their respective mono-cultures. RNA was extracted from culture samples taken after 4 (N-15) or 5 h (RBL67) and RNAseq was performed on an Illumina HiSeq 2000 sequencer. Three biological replciates were performed resulting in 12 data sets: 3 RBL67 mono culture, 3 N15 mono-culture, 3 RBL67 co-culture, 3 N15 co-culture. Our study provided first insights into probiotic-pathogen interaction on transcriptional level and suggests a mechanism for how probiotic organisms can protect the host from infections. RNA was extracted from culture samples taken after 4 (N-15) or 5 h (RBL67) and RNAseq was performed on an Illumina HiSeq 2000 sequencer. Three biological replciates were performed resulting in 12 data sets: 3 RBL67 mono culture, 3 N15 mono-culture, 3 RBL67 co-culture, 3 N15 co-culture.
