    An encyclopedia entry for yersinia enterocolitica, a bacterium found in meat and raw milk, is presented. It explains that this bacterium causes food-borne disease yersiniosis, which is characterized by symptoms of gastro-enteritis including vomiting and diarrhoea, abdominal pain and fever. Pork...

    Identification of presumptive foodborne pathogens grown on selective media may take one to several days and requires a different battery of biochemical tests for each microorganism. A molecular identification method was developed in which universal primers were used to amplify the 16S to 23S...

    The survival of three foodborne pathogens (Listeria monocytogenes, Yersinia enterocolitica, and Salmonella) attached to mortar surfaces, with or without biological soil (porcine serum) and incubated at either 4 or 10°C in the presence of condensate, was evaluated. Soiled and unsoiled coupons...

    Background: The osmotic regulator OmpR in Escherichia coli regulates differentially the expression of major porin proteins OmpF and OmpC. In Yersinia enterocolitica and Y. pseudotuberculosis, OmpR is required for both virulence and survival within macrophages. However, the phenotypic and...

    Vibrio parahaemolyticus is the leading cause of bacterial seafood-based illness in the United States. Real-time PCR, pandemic group-specific PCR, ribotyping, and multilocus sequence typing were used to characterize 30 strains of V. parahaemolyticus including 11 strains associated with foodborne...

    Background: Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a common cause of foodborne disease. Beginning in 1996, a more virulent strain having serotype O3:K6 caused major outbreaks in India and other parts of the world, resulting in the emergence of a pandemic. Other serovariants of this strain emerged during its...
