In December 2019, a cluster of cases of pneumonia emerged in Wuhan City in central China's Hubei Province. Genetic sequencing of isolates obtained from patients with pneumonia identified a novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) as the etiology (1). As of February 4, 2020, approximately 20,000 confirmed cases had been identified in China ... Read more >>

Psittacosis Outbreak among Workers at Chicken Slaughter Plants, Virginia and Georgia, USA, 2018.

Kelly A Shaw, Christine M Szablewski, Stephanie Kellner, Laura Kornegay, Patricia Bair, Skyler Brennan, Audrey Kunkes, Meredith Davis, Olivia L McGovern, Jonas Winchell, Miwako Kobayashi, Nancy Burton, Marie A de Perio, Julie Gabel, Cherie Drenzek, Julia Murphy, Caroline Holsinger, Laurie Forlano,

During August-October, 2018, an outbreak of severe respiratory illness was reported among poultry slaughter plant workers in Virginia and Georgia, USA. A multiorganizational team investigated the cause and extent of illness, determined that the illness was psittacosis, and evaluated and recommended controls for health hazards in the workplace to prevent ...

2173. Detection of Chlamydia psittaci by rtPCR in Outbreak Specimens Tested at CDC—2018.

Olivia L McGovern, Kelly Shaw, Christine Szablewski, Julie Gabel, Caroline Holsinger, Skyler Brennan, Bernard Wolff, Alvaro J Benitez, Maureen Diaz, Kathleen A Thurman, Jonas Winchell, Miwako Kobayashi,

AbstractBackgroundPsittacosis is a respiratory illness caused by Chlamydia psittaci. The most commonly available diagnostic tests are serologic tests, which have low sensitivity and can cross-react with other chlamydial species. Serologic tests also require paired sera collected weeks apart, which is impractical for patient management. Real-time polymerase chain reaction (rtPCR) testing ... Read more >>

1890. Missed Clinical Opportunities to Prevent Infections and Treat Substance Use Disorder (SUD) in People Who Inject Drugs (PWID).

Ana C Bardossy, Runa H Gokhale, Kathleen Hartnett, Kelly M Hatfield, Kelly A Jackson, Christina B Felsen, Robert McDonald, Ian Kracalik, Todd Lucas, Olivia L McGovern, Chris Van Beneden, Snigdha Vallabhaneni, Sabrina R Williams, Michael Mendoza, Michele K Bohm, John Brooks, Alice K Asher, Shelley S Magill, Anthony Fiore, Debra Blog, Elizabeth Dufort, Isaac See, Ghinwa Dumyati,

AbstractBackgroundThe age-adjusted rate of drug overdose deaths in the United States tripled from 1999 to 2016. Public health surveillance data indicate that an increasing proportion of infections due to bacterial and fungal pathogens is associated with injection drug use (IDU). We describe healthcare encounters (HCEs) of PWID as potential opportunities ... Read more >>

Intersection of endocytic and exocytic systems in Toxoplasma gondii.

Olivia L McGovern, Yolanda Rivera-Cuevas, Geetha Kannan, Andrew J Narwold, Vern B Carruthers,

Host cytosolic proteins are endocytosed by Toxoplasma gondii and degraded in its lysosome-like compartment, the vacuolar compartment (VAC), but the dynamics and route of endocytic trafficking remain undefined. Conserved endocytic components and plant-like features suggest T. gondii endocytic trafficking involves transit through early and late endosome-like compartments (ELCs) and potentially ...

Toxoplasma Retromer Is Here to Stay.

Olivia L McGovern, Vern B Carruthers,

How the protozoan pathogen Toxoplasma gondii and related parasites shuttle proteins through their intricate system of endomembranous compartments remains unclear. Sangaré et al. show that the Toxoplasma retromer complex is essential for parasite viability through its role in protein targeting to multiple locales and its interactions with newly identified partners. ...

Toxoplasma gondii ingests and digests host cytosolic proteins.

Zhicheng Dou, Olivia L McGovern, Manlio Di Cristina, Vern B Carruthers,

The protozoan parasite Toxoplasma gondii resides within a nonfusogenic vacuole during intracellular replication. Although the limiting membrane of this vacuole provides a protective barrier to acidification and degradation by lysosomal hydrolases, it also physically segregates the parasite from the host cytosol. Accordingly, it has been suggested that T. gondii acquires ... Read more >>

Crossover distribution and frequency are regulated by him-5 in Caenorhabditis elegans.

Philip M Meneely, Olivia L McGovern, Frazer I Heinis, Judith L Yanowitz,

Mutations in the him-5 gene in Caenorhabditis elegans strongly reduce the frequency of crossovers on the X chromosome, with lesser effects on the autosomes. him-5 mutants also show a change in crossover distribution on both the X and autosomes. These phenotypes are accompanied by a delayed entry into pachytene and ... Read more >>
