Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and virulence factors of Shigella species isolated from patients with diarrhea. Shigella species were isolated from 1,022 stool samples collected from different hospitals in Rosario, Argentina. The isolates were characterized using p...read more

Histone Methyltransferases

Histone methyltransferases, as chromatin modifiers, regulate the transcriptomic landscape in normal development as well in diseases such as cancer. Here is the latest research.

Virulence Factors

Virulence factors are molecules that are produced by organisms including bacteria, viruses, and fungi. They assist the organism in colonization, dissemination, and enhance the ability to survive in harsh environments and evade the host immune system. Discover the latest research on virulence factors here.

Shigellosis

Shigellosis is an infection of the intestines caused by Shigella bacteria. Signs and symptoms may range from mild abdominal discomfort to full-blown dysentery characterized by cramps, diarrhea, with slimy-consistent stools, fever, blood, pus, or mucus in stools or tenesmus. Discover the latest research on shigellosis here.

Pulmonary Hypertension

Pulmonary hypertension results in increased pulmonary arterial pressures and pulmonary vascular resistance, commonly from cardiac and respiratory diseases. As a result of the structural and functional changes, right heart failure can occur, leading to premature death. Here is the latest research on pulmonary hypertension.

Histone Methyltransferases (Keystone)

Histone methyltransferases, as chromatin modifiers, regulate the transcriptomic landscape in normal development as well as in diseases such as cancer. This feed captures the latest research.

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

Pulmonary arterial hypertension refers to the high blood pressure in the arteries that go from the heart ot the lungs. Here is the latest research.
