Genetic analysis of dermatophilus spp. using multilocus enzyme electrophoresis

Abstract

Multilocus enzyme electrophoresis was used to examine a collection of 41 mainly Australian isolates of Dermatophilus congolensis that had been cultured from sheep, cattle, horses, a goat, a marsupial and Chelonids. Allelic variation was examined at 16 enzyme loci. The isolates were divided into eight distinct electrophoretic types (ETs) with a mean genetic diversity per locus of 0.41. The three isolates from Chelonids represented a distinct clone in ET 1 which was separated from the remaining cluster of isolates of D. congolensis by a genetic distance of 0.852. These findings supported a previous proposal that the isolates from Chelonids represent a new species of Dermatophilus. The other 38 D. congolensis isolates were separated into two divisions (I and II) by a genetic distance of 0.560. The divisions were both subdivided into groups that either only contained alpha-hemolytic or beta-hemolytic isolates, but all isolates in each ET had only one hemolytic pattern. Isolates originating from the same animal species, or from the same geographic location, were not all closely related genetically. The allocation of isolates into ETs correlated well with their distribution into DNA restriction endonuclease analysis patterns previous...Continue Reading

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Blastomycosis

Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Microbicide

Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
