  1. pmc Pan-genome analysis of the emerging foodborne pathogen Cronobacter spp. suggests a species-level bidirectional divergence driven by niche adaptation
    Christopher J Grim
    CFSAN Food and Drug Administration, Laurel, MD, USA
    BMC Genomics 14:366. 2013
    ..In this study, we performed comparative genomics on eight strains of Cronobacter, including six that we sequenced (representing six of the seven species) and two previously published, closed genomes...
  2. pmc Molecular characterization of Cronobacter lipopolysaccharide O-antigen gene clusters and development of serotype-specific PCR assays
    K G Jarvis
    Lab 3412, MOD 1 Facility, Virulence Mechanisms Branch HFS 025, Division of Virulence Assessment, OARSA, Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, U S Food and Drug Administration, 8301 Muirkirk Road, Laurel, MD 20708, USA
    Appl Environ Microbiol 77:4017-26. 2011
    ..PCR assays were developed, targeting the wzx O-antigen polymerase gene, and used to screen 231 Cronobacter strains to determine the frequency of these newly identified serotypes...
  3. pmc Identification and characterization of Cronobacter iron acquisition systems
    C J Grim
    CFSAN, FDA, Laurel, Maryland, USA
    Appl Environ Microbiol 78:6035-50. 2012
    ..Taken together, these results support the proposition that C. sakazakii and C. malonaticus may be more associated with the human host and C. dublinensis and C. muytjensii with plants...
  4. pmc Characterization of putative virulence genes on the related RepFIB plasmids harbored by Cronobacter spp
    A A Franco
    Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, U S Food and Drug Administration, Laurel, MD, USA
    Appl Environ Microbiol 77:3255-67. 2011
    ..These results support the hypothesis that these plasmids have evolved from a single archetypical plasmid backbone through the cointegration, or deletion, of specific virulence traits in each species...

    A A Franco
    Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, U S Food and Drug Administration, Laurel, Maryland, USA
    Infect Immun 79:1578-87. 2011
    ..These results strongly suggest that Cpa may be an important virulence factor involved in serum resistance, as well as in the spread and invasion of C. sakazakii...
