To analyze sequences of the housekeeping genes including recA, dnaE, and mdh in different serogroups or different biotypes of Vibrio cholerae (VC) strains isolated from China. recA, dnaE, and mdh genes of Vibrio cholerae were obtained by PCR, sequenced and analyzed. Forty-four variable bases were identified in the 500 bases of recA gene of 18 VC strains, and the mutation of only 3 variable bases could result in changes of 2 amino acids. In the 600 bases of dnaE genes of 18 strains, 32 variable bases were found and only 1 contributed to an amino acid change. In the 367 bases of mdh genes of 18 strains, only 1 variable base was identified whose mutation involved an amino acid convertion. Toxic EI Tor biotype (EVC) strains and toxic O139 serogroup strains were closely related. Non-toxic strains of different serogroups or types were lowly related. Non-toxic and toxic strains of different serogroups or types were lowly related. Toxic EVC and toxic O139 serogroup strains isolated from different areas of China may evolve from a common original strain, and toxic O139 VC strains may come from toxic EVC strains.

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.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

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.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
