    Arch Microbiol 191:543-51. 2009
    ..It was also noted that the above features of growth defect at low temperatures were seen in L. dumoffii cells parasitizing the amebic host Acanthamoeba culbertsoni...

    Plasmid 58:261-8. 2007
    ..In addition, we also found a potential protein that was analogous to the DNA polymerase III epsilon subunit. It is rarely found that plasmid encode the DNA polymerase...

    Takashi Soejima
    Department of Bacteriology, Faculty of Medical Sciences, Kyushu University, Fukuoka 812 8582, Japan
    J Clin Microbiol 46:2305-13. 2008
    ..EMA + Light + T-poisons inhibited the PCR product from 10(3) to 10(7) heat-treated cells but could detect 10(1) live L. monocytogenes cells. Our method is useful in clinical as well as food hygiene tests...
  4. doi request reprint Discrimination of live, anti-tuberculosis agent-injured, and dead Mycobacterium tuberculosis using flow cytometry
    Takashi Soejima
    Department of Bacteriology, Faculty of Medical Sciences, Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan
    FEMS Microbiol Lett 294:74-81. 2009
    ..FCM (SYTO9/PI) following EMA treatment is a very rapid, simple, and effective method for discriminating live, antibiotic-injured, and dead M. tuberculosis without culture...

    Tian Qin
    Department of Bacteriology, Division of Oral Infectious Diseases and Immunology, Kyushu University, Higashi ku, Fukuoka 812 8582, Japan
    Can J Microbiol 58:490-501. 2012
    ..These results show that the icmN promoter has a low temperature inducible nature, and gene products of the icmN operon require high expression for bacterial proliferation at low temperatures within amoeba...

    Takashi Soejima
    Department of Bacteriology, Faculty of Medical Sciences, Kyushu University, Fukuoka 812 8582, Japan
    Microbiol Immunol 51:763-75. 2007

    Yuta Takekawa
    Department of Bacteriology, Faculty of Medical Sciences, Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan
    Can J Microbiol 58:179-83. 2012
    ..Such highly serpentine chain growth has not been reported in any intracellular bacteria. Furthermore, these results imply that L. oakridgensis OR-10 may be proliferating inside the endoplasmic reticulum...
