    ..This was supported by a structural modeling of the MsrA catalytic center. Finally, we applied our method onto a serum proteome from a mouse sepsis model and identified 35 in vivo methionine oxidation events in 27 different proteins. ..

    ..Butyric acid-impregnated microbeads in the feed, however, resulted in a significant decrease of colonization by S. enteritidis in the ceca but not in liver and spleen. ..

    ..IgY would undergo denaturation and degradation after their passage through the animal gastrointestinal tract and reveal that components of EYP other than specific antibodies have a beneficial effect on growth performance. ..
  5. De Vylder J, Van Hoorebeke S, Ducatelle R, Pasmans F, Haesebrouck F, Dewulf J, et al. Effect of the housing system on shedding and colonization of gut and internal organs of laying hens with Salmonella Enteritidis. Poult Sci. 2009;88:2491-5 pubmed publisher
    ..This study does not give indications that housing layers in alternative systems will yield a risk for increased Salmonella contamination. ..
  6. Pattery T, Hernalsteens J, De Greve H. Identification and molecular characterization of a novel Salmonella enteritidis pathogenicity islet encoding an ABC transporter. Mol Microbiol. 1999;33:791-805 pubmed
    ..The wild-type phenotype could be restored by in vivo complementation with the sfbABC operon. This novel transporter might be involved in iron uptake in Salmonella...
  7. Van Immerseel F, De Buck J, De Smet I, Mast J, Haesebrouck F, Ducatelle R. The effect of vaccination with a Salmonella enteritidis aroA mutant on early cellular responses in caecal lamina propria of newly-hatched chickens. Vaccine. 2002;20:3034-41 pubmed

    ..It is hypothesized that the binding of S. Enteritidis to isthmal secretions could play a role in the contamination of eggs through incorporation of the bacteria in the shell membranes. ..
  9. Van Immerseel F, De Buck J, De Smet I, Pasmans F, Haesebrouck F, Ducatelle R. Interactions of butyric acid- and acetic acid-treated Salmonella with chicken primary cecal epithelial cells in vitro. Avian Dis. 2004;48:384-91 pubmed
    ..These interactions of S. enteritidis with primary chicken cecal epithelial cells were similar to the interactions with other epithelial cell types...
