Detección y estudio genómico de genes asociados a la resistencia a colistina

Presentation by Laura Montecino Fernández to obtain the Master in Genetics and Molecular Biology


La colistina es un antimicrobiano dosis-dependiente catiónico perteneciente a la familia de las polimixinas, cuya diana es la membrana externa de las bacterias Gram negativas, en concreto el lipopolisacárido (LPS), con el objetivo de aumentar la permeabilidad de la membrana provocando la fuga del contenido citoplasmático y la muerte de la bacteria. Debido sus efectos adversos, su uso se limitó y quedó prácticamente obsoleto en medicina humana, mientras que en medicina veterinaria se ha utilizado ampliamente durante décadas enfermedades infecciosas causadas por enterobacterias. Hace unos años s… Read more

Infequus: Plataforma de Enfermedades Infecciosas Equinas

Oral communication in Jornada Aprendizaje eficaz con TIC


Las TIC (Tecnologías de la Información y de la Comunicación) ayudan a los alumnos de ciencias experimentales en la actualización y la aplicación de los conocimientos necesarios durante su etapa de aprendizaje y en su posterior desarrollo profesional. Infequus (de Infecciosas y Equus) es una plataforma abierta online sobre diagnóstico y control de las enfermedades infecciosas en équidos que puede ser utilizada por alumnos y profesores del grado en Veterinaria, así como profesionales en su etapa laboral. Actualmente, Infequus recoge 26 enfermedades equinas, 43 agentes infecciosos y 213 signos c… Read more

Long-Term Determinants of the Seroprevalence of the Hepatitis E Virus in Wild Boar (Sus scrofa)

Animals publish this investigation article


The hepatitis E virus (HEV) is an emerging zoonotic pathogen whose main reservoir is suids. Most of the ecological and epidemiological aspects of its sylvatic cycle remain unknown. Thus, in this work, we study the drivers of HEV exposure in the wild boar population of Doñana National Park (DNP, southwest Spain) operating in the medium and long-term (2005–2018). Anti-HEV antibodies are widely distributed throughout the wild boar (46.7 ± 3.8%, 327 out of 700 sampled), showing a statistically significant age-increasing pattern. The temporal pattern displayed important interannual fluctuations. Th… Read more

Pathogens

The Role of Interleukine-10 and Interferon-gamma as Potential Markers of the Evolution of African Swine Fever Virus Infection in Wild Boar

Investigation published in Pathogens


African swine fever virus (ASFv) is one of the most challenging pathogens to affect both domestic and wild pigs. The disease has now spread to Europe and Asia, causing great damage to the pig industry. Although no commercial vaccine with which to control the disease is, as yet, available, some potential vaccine candidates have shown good results in terms of protection. However, little is known about the host immune mechanisms underlying that protection, especially in wild boar, which is the main reservoir of the disease in Europe. Here, we study the role played by two cytokines (IL-10 and IFN-… Read more

Colistin selection of the mcr-1 gene in broiler chicken intestinal microbiota

Investigation article published in Antibiotics


: Colistin has a long story of safe use in animals for the treatment and prevention of certain bacterial diseases. Nevertheless, the first description of the mcr-1 gene showed that colistin resistance can spread by horizontal gene transfer and changed the landscape. This study aimed to assess the effect of colistin administration on the dispersion of resistance in the microbiota of day-old broiler chicks and how the presence of mcr-1 genes influences the spread of colistin resistance determinants. In this study, 100 one-day-old chicks were divided into four groups of 25 animals (G1, G2, G3, an… Read more

Ecological Indicators

Expansion of native wild boar populations is a new threat for semi-arid wetland areas

Investigation published in Ecological Indicators


Wildlife management and conservation requires monitoring of species distribution and population indicators, especially when the unbalanced demographic changes of some species can affect the whole ecosystem functioning. The populations of wild boar (Sus scrofa) have, over the past few decades, undergone an expansion around the world, reaching situations of overabundance that can cause serious economic, ecological and health problems. This numerical increase of wild boar and its new spatial invasion can affect certain vulnerable species in sensitive ecological zones, such as the main inland wetl… Read more

Characterization of wildlife-livestock interfaces the need for interdisciplinary approaches and a dedicated thematic field

Characterization of wildlife-livestock interfaces: the need for interdisciplinary approaches and a dedicated thematic field

The book Diseases at the Wildlife - Livestock Interface Research and Perspectives in a Changing World edited by Springer International Publishing includes this chapter


The study of wildlife/livestock interfaces has long suffered from the sealing among the different agricultural - including veterinary - and environmental sectors and the lack of multidisciplinary approaches. Following the SARS and H5N1 crisis, bridges have been developed between sectors and different disciplines, especially between the fields of epidemiology and ecology and more recently of molecular biology and social sciences. Today wildlife/livestock interfaces benefit from an increased attention by biologists and epidemiologists who have developed dedicated approaches for their characteri… Read more
