In vitro virulence characteristics of rare serovars of Salmonella enterica isolated from sand lizards (Lacerta agilis L.)

The aim of this study was to estimate virulence potential of Salmonella enterica strains colonizing the gut of free-living sand lizards (Lacerta agilis L.). The strains belonged to three Salmonella serovars: Abony, Schleissheim, and Telhashomer. Adhesion and invasion abilities of the strains were determined in quantitative assays using the gentamicin protection method. Induction...

Abundance of Class 1 Integron-Integrase and Sulfonamide Resistance Genes in River Water and Sediment Is Affected by Anthropogenic Pressure and Environmental Factors

In this study, we determined the presence of class 1 integron-integrase gene in culturable heterotrophic bacteria isolated from river water and sediment sampled upstream and downstream of a wastewater treatment plant effluent discharge. Moreover, we quantified intI1 and sulfonamide resistance genes (sul1 and sul2) in the water and sediment using qPCR. There was no correlation...

Environmental Isolate of Rahnella aquatilis Harbors Class 1 Integron

The paper presents first description of class 1 integron in an environmental strain of Rahnella aquatilis, a rarely isolated Gram-negative bacterium of the family Enterobacteriaceae. The strain was isolated from the Warta river water, Poland. Class 1 integrase gene was detected by a PCR assay. Sequencing of the integron’s variable region showed the presence of a dfrA1-aadA1 gene...

Class 1 Integrons and Antibiotic Resistance of Clinical Acinetobacter calcoaceticus–baumannii Complex in Poznań, Poland

Sixty-three clinical isolates of Acinetobacter calcoaceticus–baumannii complex were analyzed for the presence of integrons and antimicrobial resistance. Class 1 integrons were detected in 40 (63.5 %) isolates. None of them had class 2 or class 3 integrons. The majority of the integrons contained aacC1–orfA–orfB–aadA1 gene cassette array. The presence of integrons was associated...

Transferable integrons of Gram-negative bacteria isolated from the gut of a wild boar in the buffer zone of a national park

Joanna Mokracka Ryszard Koczura Adam Kaznowski The aim of this study was to determine the presence of integron-bearing Gram-negative bacteria in the gut of a wild boar (Sus scrofa L.) shot in the

Association between the Presence of Class 1 Integrons, Virulence Genes, and Phylogenetic Groups of Escherichia coli Isolates from River Water

Ryszard Koczura Joanna Mokracka Agata Barczak Natalia Krysiak Adam Kaznowski Ninety-six class 1 integron-positive and 96 integron-negative Escherichia coli isolates cultured from the water of the

Aeromonas spp.-mediated cell-contact cytotoxicity is associated with the presence of type III secretion system

In the study we examined the production of cytotonic and cytotoxic toxins and the presence of a type III secretion system (TTSS) in 64 Aeromonas spp. strains isolated from fecal specimens of patients with gastroenteritis. We observed that contact of the bacteria with host epithelial cells is a prerequisite for their cytotoxicity at 3 h incubation. Cell-contact cytotoxic activity...

Phylogenetic groups, virulence genes and quinolone resistance of integron-bearing Escherichia coli strains isolated from a wastewater treatment plant

We investigated phylogenetic affiliation, occurrence of virulence genes and quinolone resistance in 109 integron-containing strains of Escherichia coli isolated from a wastewater treatment plant. Selection for integron-bearing strains caused a shift toward phylogroup D, which was most numerous, followed by A, B1 and B2. Phylogroups D and B2, both of which are reported to include...
