Reclassification of Wolbachia persica as Francisella persica comb. nov. and emended description of the family Francisellaceae.

Marilynn A Larson, Ufuk Nalbantoglu, Khalid Sayood, Emily B Zentz, Regina Zing Cer, Peter C Iwen, Stephen C Francesconi, Kimberly A Bishop-Lilly, Vishwesh P Mokashi, Anders Sjöstedt, Steven H Hinrichs,

The taxonomic status of the bacterium Wolbachia persica is described, and based on the evidence presented, transfer of this species to the genus Francisella as Francisella persica comb. nov. is proposed. This reclassification is supported by data generated from genomic comparisons of W. persica ATCC VR-331T ( = FSC845T = DSM 101678T) to other ... Read more >>

Francisella tularensis Subtype A.II Genomic Plasticity in Comparison with Subtype A.I.

Marilynn A Larson, Ufuk Nalbantoglu, Khalid Sayood, Emily B Zentz, Amanda M Bartling, Stephen C Francesconi, Paul D Fey, Michael P Dempsey, Steven H Hinrichs,

Although Francisella tularensis is considered a monomorphic intracellular pathogen, molecular genotyping and virulence studies have demonstrated important differences within the tularensis subspecies (type A). To evaluate genetic variation within type A strains, sequencing and assembly of a new subtype A.II genome was achieved for comparison to other completed F. tularensis ... Read more >>

Comparative whole-genome mapping to determine Staphylococcus aureus genome size, virulence motifs, and clonality.

Sanjay K Shukla, Madhulatha Pantrangi, Buffy Stahl, Adam M Briska, Mary E Stemper, Trevor K Wagner, Emily B Zentz, Steven M Callister, Steven D Lovrich, John K Henkhaus, Colin W Dykes,

Despite being a clonal pathogen, Staphylococcus aureus continues to acquire virulence and antibiotic-resistant genes located on mobile genetic elements such as genomic islands, prophages, pathogenicity islands, and the staphylococcal chromosomal cassette mec (SCCmec) by horizontal gene transfer from other staphylococci. The potential virulence of a S. aureus strain is often ... Read more >>

Optical mapping and sequencing of the Escherichia coli KO11 genome reveal extensive chromosomal rearrangements, and multiple tandem copies of the Zymomonas mobilis pdc and adhB genes.

Peter C Turner, Lorraine P Yomano, Laura R Jarboe, Sean W York, Christy L Baggett, Brélan E Moritz, Emily B Zentz, K T Shanmugam, Lonnie O Ingram,

Escherichia coli KO11 (ATCC 55124) was engineered in 1990 to produce ethanol by chromosomal insertion of the Zymomonas mobilis pdc and adhB genes into E. coli ... Read more >>

Use of optical mapping to sort uropathogenic Escherichia coli strains into distinct subgroups.

William R Schwan, Adam Briska, Buffy Stahl, Trevor K Wagner, Emily Zentz, John Henkhaus, Steven D Lovrich, William A Agger, Steven M Callister, Brian DuChateau, Colin W Dykes,

Optical maps were generated for 33 uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) isolates. For individual genomes, the NcoI restriction fragments aligned into a unique chromosome map for each individual isolate, which was then compared with the in silico restriction maps of all of the sequenced E. coli and Shigella strains. All of ... Read more >>
