    Abstract : Vibrio cholerae, the causal agent of cholera typically encodes two critical virulence factors: cholera toxin (CT), which is primarily responsible for the diarrhoeal purge, and toxin-co-regulated pilus (TCP), an essential colonisation factor. Nontoxigenic strains expressing TCP can efficiently acquire the CT gene through lysogenic conversion with CTXΦ, a filamentous phage that encodes CT and uses TCP as a receptor. READ MORE

  2. 2. Effect of virulence factors on survival strategies of vibrio cholerae and vibrio mimicus

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Laboratory Medicine

    Author : Soni Priya Valeru; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Vibrio cholerae;

    Abstract : Vibrio is a genus of gram-negative bacteria comprising nearly 70 species and they are clinically human pathogens that can cause many infections. This study is mainly based on two species such as Vibrio cholerae O1 El Tor, which cause cholera disease and Vibrio mimicus, that cause gastroenteritis, open wounds infection, and septicemia.

  3. 3. Characterization and persistence of potential human pathogenic vibrios in aquatic environments

    University dissertation from Kristianstad : Kristianstad University

    Author : Betty Collin; Högskolan Kristianstad.; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2012]
    Keywords : Natural Sciences Biological Sciences Microbiology; Naturvetenskap Biologiska vetenskaper Mikrobiologi; Vibrio cholerae; Vibrio parahaemolyticus; Mozambique; Sweden; molluscs; occurrence; persistence; sediment; TCBS; PCR; PhP; antibiotic resistance; microbiology; Vibrio spp.; Mytilus edulis;

    Abstract : Vibrio spp., natural inhabitants of aquatic environments, are one of the most common causes of bacterial gastroenteritis in the world, being spread to humans via the ingestion of seafood, contaminated drinking water or exposure to seawater. The majority of Vibrio spp. are avirulent, but certain strains may sporadically be human pathogenic. READ MORE

  4. 4. Structural and functional studies of the secreted metalloprotease PrtV from Vibrio cholerae

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Aaron Edwin; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : Natural Sciences; Naturvetenskap; Cholera; Vibrio cholerae; virulence factors; PrtV; X-ray crystallography; NMR;

    Abstract : Cholera, an acute diarrheal diseases caused by the intestinal infection of the pathogenic bacterium Vibrio cholerae, continues to be a global killer in the world today. PrtV, a secreted zinc metalloprotease, is a potent cytotoxic virulence factor of V. cholerae. READ MORE

  5. 5. A mouse model for direct evaluation of cholera vaccines

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Erik Nygren; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN; MEDICINE; Vibrio cholerae; cholera vaccine; cholera toxin; LPS; anti-bacterial immunity; IgA; challenge; protection; colonization;

    Abstract : Cholera continues to be an important cause of morbidity and mortality in large parts of the developing world and is a significant negative factor for economic development. Vibrio cholerae bacteria of the O1 or O139 serogroup can cause disease due to their ability to colonize the intestine and produce an enterotoxin, cholera toxin (CT). READ MORE
