- Bartonella spp. as emerging human pathogensB E Anderson
Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology, College of Medicine, University of South Florida, Tampa 33612, USA
Clin Microbiol Rev 10:203-19. 1997..A brief summary of the clinical presentations associated with Bartonella infections is presented, and the current status of laboratory diagnosis and identification of these organisms is reviewed...
- Isolation, sequencing and expression of Bartonella henselae omp43 and predicted membrane topology of the deduced proteinA W Burgess
University of South Florida College of Medicine, Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology, Tampa 33612, USA
Microb Pathog 29:73-80. 2000..Characterization and expression of the gene encoding Omp43 should provide a tool for further investigation of the role of adherence to endothelial cells in the pathogenesis of B. henselae...
- Binding of Bartonella henselae to extracellular molecules: identification of potential adhesinsS M Dabo
Department of Veterinary Pathobiology, Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, OK 74078 2007, USA
Microb Pathog 41:10-20. 2006..Taken together, the above data suggest that interactions between B. henselae and ECM molecules such as Fn may play an important role in the bacterium adherence to and invasion of host cells...
- Sequence analysis of the 17-kilodalton-antigen gene from Rickettsia rickettsiiB E Anderson
J Bacteriol 169:2385-90. 1987..The deduced amino acid sequence contained a hydrophobic sequence near the amino terminus that resembled signal peptides described for E. coli. The carboxy terminus was hydrophilic in nature and probably contained the exposed epitopes...
