Genome comparison of erythromycin resistant Campylobacter from turkey identifies hosts and pathways for horizontal spread of erm(B) genes

Investigation article published in Frontiers in Microbiology


Pathogens in the genus Campylobacter are the most common cause of food-borne bacterial gastro-enteritis. Campylobacteriosis, caused principally by Campylobacter jejuni and C. coli, is transmitted to humans by food of animal origin, especially poultry. As for many pathogens, antimicrobial resistance in Campylobacter is increasing at an alarming rate. Erythromycin prescription is the treatment of choice for clinical cases requiring antimicrobial therapy but this is compromised by mobility of the erythromycin resistance gene erm(B) between strains. Here we evaluate resistance to six antimicrobial… Leer más

Genomic characterization and antimicrobial resistance of Campylobacter

PhD Thesis defense by Diego Flórez Cuadrado at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of de Complutense University of Madrid


Bacteria of the genus Campylobacter, mainly C. jejuni and C. coli, represent the most frequent cause of gastroenteritis of alimentary origin worldwide. These microorganisms colonize the digestive tract of birds and mammals. The main route of infection for humans is through the consumption of contaminated poultry meat. The infection produced by Campylobacter is usually self-limiting but can occasionally produce complications that require antimicrobial treatment. Erythromycin is the main treatment of choice. Resistance to erythromycin in Campylobacter has been related to mutations in genes or… Leer más

Proteomic characterisation of bovine and avian purified protein derivatives and identification of specific antigens for serodiagnosis of bovine tuberculosis

Investigation published in Clincal Proteomics


Bovine purified protein derivative (bPPD) and avian purified protein derivative (aPPD) are widely used for bovine tuberculosis diagnosis. However, little is known about their qualitative and quantitative characteristics, which makes their standardisation difficult. In addition, bPPD can give false-positive tuberculosis results because of sequence homology between Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis) and M. avium proteins. Thus, the objective of this study was to carry out a proteomic characterisation of bPPD, aPPD and an immunopurified subcomplex from bPPD called P22 in order to identify proteins co… Leer más

Streptococcus ovuberis sp. nov., isolated from a subcutaneous abscess in the udder of a sheep

Investigation article published in International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology


One unidentified, Gram-stain-positive, catalase-negative coccus-shaped organism was recovered from a subcutaneous abscess of the udder of a sheep and subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic analysis. Based on cellular morphology and biochemical criteria, the isolate was tentatively assigned to the genus Streptococcus, although the organism did not appear to match any recognized species. 16S rRNA gene sequence comparison studies confirmed its identification as a member of the genus Streptococcus and showed that the nearest phylogenetic relatives of the unknown coccus corresponded to Streptococcus m… Leer más

MCR-2-mediated plasmid-borne polymyxin resistance most likely originates from Moraxella pluranimalium

The Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy publish this investigation article


The recent identification of the first plasmid-mediated polymyxin resistance determinants, namely the MCR-1 and MCR-2 enzymes, has constituted an ultimate threat of pandrug resistance in Gram-negative organisms.1–3 These enzymes have been reported only in Enterobacteriaceae, mainly in Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae; however, there have been reports from other enterobacterial genera, including Enterobacter, Salmonella and Shigella.1 The mcr-1 and mcr-2 genes have both been identified from cattle and pigs.1–3 In addition, the mcr-1 gene has been identified from chickens,4 but also fr… Leer más
