Yersinia pestis er en bakterie som tilhører familien enterobakterier.Den forårsaker byllepest og lungepest.Alle former for bakterien har gitt opphav til store dødstall ved flere kjente epidemier gjennom menneskehetens historie. Uten behandling har sykdommen meget høy dødelighet Yersinia-bakterien kan forårsake en tarminfeksjon. Smitten kommer vanligvis fra svin. For de fleste er det en forbigående diarésykdom. Noen få kan utvikle leddsmerter og hudforandringer i etterforløpet Mutant pyrin interacts less avidly with Yersinia pestis virulence factor YopM than with wild-type human pyrin, thereby attenuating YopM-induced interleukin (IL)-1β suppression. Relative to healthy controls, leukocytes from patients with FMF harboring homozygous or compound heterozygous mutations and from asymptomatic heterozygous carriers released heightened IL-1β specifically in response to. Author Summary In order to understand and combat infectious diseases, it is essential to characterize the full set of genes required by pathogenic bacteria to overcome the many immunological and physiological challenges encountered during infection. Here, we used a genome-scale approach to identify genes required by the bacterium Yersinia pestis in the production of bubonic plague (a fatal.
Pathogenic yersiniae either repress flagella expression under host conditions (Yersinia enterocolitica and Yersinia pseudotuberculosis) or have permanently lost this capability by mutation (Yersinia pestis).The block in flagella synthesis for the enteropathogenic Yersinia centers on fliA (σF) repression. This repression ensures the downstream repression of flagellin structural genes which can. Bakterien Yersinia er en av de vanligste årsakene til diaré i Norge. Yersinia finnes stort sett hos svin, og kan gjøre mennesker syke. Mennesker får i seg bakterien gjennom å spise infisert svinekjøtt, eller fordi bakterien har smittet over til annen mat eller drikke Abstract. We describe here a strain of Yersinia pestis, G1670A, which exhibits a baseline mutation rate elevated 250-fold over wild-type Y. pestis.The responsible mutation, a C to T substitution in the mutS gene, results in the transition of a highly conserved leucine at position 689 to arginine (mutS(L689R)).When the MutS L689R protein of G1670A was expressed in a ΔmutS derivative of Y.

To the Editor: Yersinia pestis causes plague, which primarily affects rodents, but is an invasive and virulent pathogen among humans.Y. pestis infection is endemic in small rodent populations in different parts of the world, and the bacterium is considered a potential bioweapon because it can be easily isolated, produced, dried, and dispersed as an aerosol Recent studies revealed that acetylation is a widely used protein modification in prokaryotic organisms. The major protein acetylation acetyltransferase YfiQ and the sirtuin-like deacetylase CobB have been found to be involved in basic physiological processes, such as primary metabolism, chemotaxis, and stress responses, in Escherichia coli and Salmonella
PATHOGENESIS Yersinia pestis is primarily a rodent pathogen, with humans being an accidental host when bitten by an infected rat flea. The flea draws viable Y. pestis organisms into its intestinal tract. These organisms multiply in the flea and block the flea's proventriculus. Some Y. pestis in the flea are then regurgitated when the flea gets its next blood meal thus transferring the. Yersinia pestis specific phages such as L-413C and ΦA1122 are already used for detection of Y. pestis in bacterial plaque or biosensor assays. Here, we made use of the host specificities conferred by phage receptor binding (or tail fiber/spike) proteins (RBP) for developing a specific, fast and simple fluorescence-microscopy-based detection method for Y. pestis
Yersinia spp. are responsible for disease syndromes ranging from gastroenteritis to plague.Y.pestis is the cause of the plague and is actually catagorized into three subtypes or biovars; Antiqua, Medievalis, and Orientalis, each associated with a major pandemic.Y.pestis strand KIM belongs to biovar Mediaevalis while strand CO92 is in biovar Orientalis Yersinia pestis can cause any of three diseases - bubonic plague, pneumonic plague, and Septicemic plague. Bubonic and pneumonic plagues have in the past been weaponized by Japan and USSR. This article analyses whether terrorist groups will emulate these national biological warfare programs and thus will seek to develop weapons armed with Y. pestis Yersinia pestis er ein bakterie i familien enterobakteriar. Y. pestis smittar pattedyr og finst særleg hos smågnagarar.Den kan spreie seg til menneske gjennom lopper og gjev pest.Pest har gjeve opphav til store dødstal ved fleire kjente epidemiar i historisk tid (utan medisinsk tilsyn har pest høg letalitet), som til dømes Svartedauden, som tok livet av mellom ein tredel og halvparten av.
