Recoverability of Listeria monocytogenes after coculture with Tetrahymena pyriformis

Richard J Meinersmann, Mark E Berrang, Luanne L Rigsby,

Bactivory by protozoa is a major factor that limits the number of bacteria in nature and may control the presence of Listeria monocytogenes. The effectiveness of Tetrahymena pyriformis destruction of L. monocytogenes was measured. Within 1 hr, 35–40 T. pyriformis cells ingested an average of 1,219 CFU of L. monocytogenes. Gentamicin ...

The biology of IncI2 plasmids shown by whole-plasmid multi-locus sequence typing.

Richard J Meinersmann,

IncI2 type plasmids are medium-sized (~55-80 kb) conjugative plasmids that have been found carrying important antimicrobial resistance genes but have also been frequently found as cryptic plasmids. The DNA sequences for 147 fully sequenced IncI2 plasmids were studied by a whole-plasmid multi-locus sequence typing (wpMLST) scheme. A total of 171 loci ... Read more >>

Assessing Cat Flea Microbiomes in Northern and Southern California by 16S rRNA Next-Generation Sequencing.

Elton J R Vasconcelos, Sarah A Billeter, Lindsey A Jett, Richard J Meinersmann, Margaret C Barr, Pedro P V P Diniz, Brian B Oakley,

Flea-borne diseases (FBDs) impact both human and animal health worldwide. Because adult fleas are obligately hematophagous and can harbor potential pathogens, fleas act as ectoparasites of vertebrates, as well as zoonotic disease vectors. Cat fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) are important vectors of two zoonotic bacterial genera listed as priority pathogens by ... Read more >>

Passage of Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli Subtypes through 0.45- and 0.65-Micrometer-Pore-Size Nitrocellulose Filters.

Mark E Berrang, Richard J Meinersmann, Nelson A Cox,

Campylobacter can be difficult to recover from complex samples due to overgrowth by background bacteria. A 0.45- or 0.65-μm-pore-size filter overlaid on agar plates can be used as a means to separate Campylobacter from confounding non-Campylobacter cells, facilitating detection on solid plating media. It is unclear what percentage of cells ... Read more >>

Rebecca L Lindsey, Jonathan G Frye, Paula J Fedorka-Cray, Richard J Meinersmann,

In the family Enterobacteriaceae, plasmids have been classified according to 27 incompatibility (Inc) or replicon types that are based on the inability of different plasmids with the same replication mechanism to coexist in the same cell. Certain replicon types such as IncA/C are associated with multidrug resistance (MDR). We developed ... Read more >>
