A genus of gram-negative, oxidase-positive, nonfermentative rods which are motile by means of a single flagellum. Afipia felis and BARTONELLA HENSELAE are causative agents of CAT-SCRATCH DISEASE. (From Bergey's Manual of Determinative Bacteriology, 9th ed)
A self-limiting bacterial infection of the regional lymph nodes caused by AFIPIA felis, a gram-negative bacterium recently identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and by BARTONELLA HENSELAE. It usually arises one or more weeks following a feline scratch, with raised inflammatory nodules at the site of the scratch being the primary symptom.
A proposed family of bacteria belonging to the alpha-2 subgroup of PROTEOBACTERIA.
Bacteria which lose crystal violet stain but are stained pink when treated by Gram's method.
Information or data used to ensure the safe handling and disposal of substances in the workplace. Such information includes physical properties (i.e. melting, boiling, flashing points), as well as data on toxicity, health effects, reactivity, storage, disposal, first-aid, protective equipment, and spill-handling procedures.
The type species of the genus BARTONELLA, a gram-negative bacteria found in humans. It is found in the mountain valleys of Peru, Ecuador, and Southwest Columbia where the sandfly (see PHLEBOTOMUS) vector is present. It causes OROYA FEVER and VERRUGA PERUANA.
A genus of gram-negative bacteria characteristically appearing in chains of several segmenting organisms. It occurs in man and arthropod vectors and is found only in the Andes region of South America. This genus is the etiologic agent of human bartonellosis. The genus Rochalimaea, once considered a separate genus, has recently been combined with the genus Bartonella as a result of high levels of relatedness in 16S rRNA sequence data and DNA hybridization data.
Elements, compounds, mixtures, or solutions that are considered severely harmful to human health and the environment. They include substances that are toxic, corrosive, flammable, or explosive.
Infections by the genus BARTONELLA. Bartonella bacilliformis can cause acute febrile anemia, designated Oroya fever, and a benign skin eruption, called verruga peruana. BARTONELLA QUINTANA causes TRENCH FEVER, while BARTONELLA HENSELAE is the etiologic agent of bacillary angiomatosis (ANGIOMATOSIS, BACILLARY) and is also one of the causes of CAT-SCRATCH DISEASE in immunocompetent patients.
A species of gram-negative bacteria in which man is the primary host and the human body louse, Pediculus humanus, the principal vector. It is the etiological agent of TRENCH FEVER.
A species of gram-negative bacteria that is the etiologic agent of bacillary angiomatosis (ANGIOMATOSIS, BACILLARY). This organism can also be a cause of CAT-SCRATCH DISEASE in immunocompetent patients.
A reactive vascular proliferation that is characterized by the multiple tumor-like lesions in skin, bone, brain, and other organs. Bacillary angiomatosis is caused by infection with gram-negative Bartonella bacilli (such as BARTONELLA HENSELAE), and is often seen in AIDS patients and other IMMUNOCOMPROMISED HOSTS.

Afipia felis induces uptake by macrophages directly into a nonendocytic compartment. (1/7)

Afipia felis is a Gram-negative bacterium that causes some cases of human Cat Scratch Disease. A. felis can survive and multiply in several mammalian cell types, including macrophages, but the precise intracellular compartmentalization of A. felis-containing phagosomes is unknown. Here, we demonstrate that, in murine macrophages, most A. felis-containing phagosomes exclude lysosomal tracer loaded into macrophage lysosomes before, as well as endocytic tracer loaded after, establishment of an infection. Established Afipia-containing phagosomes possess neither early endosomal marker proteins [early endosome antigen 1 (EEA1), Rab5, transferrin receptor, trytophane aspartate containing coat protein (TACO)] nor late endosomal or lysosomal proteins [cathepsin D, beta-glucuronidase, vacuolar proton-pumping ATPase, rab7, mannose-6-phosphate receptor, vesicle-associated membrane protein 8, lysosome-associated membrane proteins LAMP-1 and LAMP-2]. Those bacteria that will be found in a nonendosomal compartment enter the macrophage via an EEA1-negative compartment, which remains negative for LAMP-1. The smaller subpopulation of afipiae whose phagosomes will be part of the endocytic system enters into an EEA1-positive compartment, which also subsequently acquires LAMP-1. Killing of Afipia or opsonization with immune antibodies leads to a strong increase in the percentage of A. felis-containing phagosomes that interact with the endocytic system. We conclude that most phagosomes containing A. felis are disconnected from the endosome-lysosome continuum, that their unusual compartmentalization is decided at uptake, and that this compartmentalization requires bacterial viability.  (+info)

tfdA-like genes in 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid-degrading bacteria belonging to the Bradyrhizobium-Agromonas-Nitrobacter-Afipia cluster in alpha-Proteobacteria. (2/7)

The 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetate (2,4-D)/alpha-ketoglutarate dioxygenase gene (tfdA) homolog designated tfdAalpha was cloned and characterized from 2,4-D-degrading bacterial strain RD5-C2. This Japanese upland soil isolate belongs to the Bradyrhizobium-Agromonas-Nitrobacter-Afipia cluster in the alpha subdivision of the class Proteobacteria on the basis of its 16S ribosomal DNA sequence. Sequence analysis showed 56 to 60% identity of tfdAalpha to representative tfdA genes. A MalE-TfdAalpha fusion protein expressed in Escherichia coli exhibited about 10 times greater activity for phenoxyacetate than 2,4-D in an alpha-ketoglutarate- and Fe(II)-dependent reaction. The deduced amino acid sequence of TfdAalpha revealed a conserved His-X-Asp-X(146)-His-X(14)-Arg motif characteristic of the active site of group II alpha-ketoglutarate-dependent dioxygenases. The tfdAalpha genes were also detected in 2,4-D-degrading alpha-Proteobacteria previously isolated from pristine environments in Hawaii and in Saskatchewan, Canada (Y. Kamagata, R. R. Fulthorpe, K. Tamura, H. Takami, L. J. Forney, and J. M. Tiedje, Appl. Environ. Microbiol. 63:2266-2272, 1997). These findings indicate that the tfdA genes in beta- and gamma-Proteobacteria and the tfdAalpha genes in alpha-Proteobacteria arose by divergent evolution from a common ancestor.  (+info)

Description of Afipia birgiae sp. nov. and Afipia massiliensis sp. nov. and recognition of Afipia felis genospecies A. (3/7)

On the basis of phenotypic characterization and DNA relatedness, two novel species are proposed, Afipia birgiae sp. nov. (type strain 34632T = CIP 106344T = CCUG 43108T) and Afipia massiliensis sp. nov. (type strain 34633T = CIP 107022T = CCUG 45153T). A new genospecies is described, named Afipia felis genospecies A, closely related to Afipia felis. The complexity encountered in the taxonomy of the Bradyrhizobiaceae group within the alpha-2 subgroup of the Proteobacteria is discussed and the description of these novel species highlights the need for new tools for phylogenetic analysis in the group. The novel species herein described are fastidious bacteria isolated from a hospital water supply in co-culture with amoebae. It is hypothesized that this group of bacteria are a potential cause of nosocomial infections.  (+info)

Usefulness of rpoB gene sequencing for identification of Afipia and Bosea species, including a strategy for choosing discriminative partial sequences. (4/7)

Bacteria belonging to the genera Afipia and Bosea are amoeba-resisting bacteria that have been recently reported to colonize hospital water supplies and are suspected of being responsible for intensive care unit-acquired pneumonia. Identification of these bacteria is now based on determination of the 16S ribosomal DNA sequence. However, the 16S rRNA gene is not polymorphic enough to ensure discrimination of species defined by DNA-DNA relatedness. The complete rpoB sequences of 20 strains were first determined by both PCR and genome walking methods. The percentage of homology between different species ranged from 83 to 97% and was in all cases lower than that observed with the 16S rRNA gene; this was true even for species that differed in only one position. The taxonomy of Bosea and Afipia is discussed in light of these results. For strain identification that does not require the complete rpoB sequence (4,113 to 4,137 bp), we propose a simple computerized method that allows determination of nucleotide positions of high variability in the sequence that are bordered by conserved sequences and that could be useful for design of universal primers. A fragment of 740 to 752 bp that contained the most highly variable area (positions 408 to 420) was amplified and sequenced with these universal primers for 47 strains. The variability of this sequence allowed identification of all strains and correlated well with results of DNA-DNA relatedness. In the future, this method could be also used for the determination of variability "hot spots" in sets of housekeeping genes, not only for identification purposes but also for increasing the discriminatory power of sequence typing techniques such as multilocus sequence typing.  (+info)

Rare bacterium of new genus isolated with prolonged enrichment culture. (5/7)

Dynamic change in microbial flora was monitored with an oxygen electrode. The 1st phase microorganisms, which first grew well in LB medium, were followed by the 2nd phase microorganisms, which supposedly assimilated microbial cells of the 1st phase and their metabolites. In a similar way, a change in microbial flora was observed from the 1st phase to the 4th phase in 84 hr. Based on this observation, prolonged enrichment culture was done for as long as two months to increase the ratio of existence of rare microorganisms. From these culture liquids, four slow-growing bacteria (provisionally named Shinshu-ah1, -ah2, -ah3, and -ah4), which formed scarcely visible small colonies, were isolated. Sequence analysis of their 16S rDNA showed that Shinshu-ah1 had 97% homology with Bradyrhizobium japonicum and uncultured alpha proteobacterium clone blaii 16, Shinshu-ah2 91% with Rasbo bacterium, Alpha proteobacterium 34619, Bradyrhizobium genosp. P, Afipia felis and an unidentified bacterium, Shinshu-ah3 99% with Methylobacterium mesophilicum, and Shinshu-ah4 95% with Agromyces ramosus DSM 43045. Phylogenetic study indicated that Shinshu-ah2 had a possibility to form a new family, Shinshu-ah1 a new genus, and Shinshu-ah4 a new species.  (+info)

San Francisco, CA - Its almost like the plot of a horror movie. A 25-year-old infectious disease worker left work Friday only to die the next day after being infected with the contagious bacteria he had been working with.. The man worked at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center where, over the last few months, he had been working with a rare Neisseria meningitidis bacterial strain that causes septicemia and meningitis - both of which are nasty ways to go if left untreated.. Meningitis can lead to fever, headache, neck stiffness, coma and then death. By comparison, you would pray for this over septicemia, which is what investigators believe killed the man. Septicimia is inflammation of the bloodstream that causes bleeding into the skin and organs. A person unlucky enough to be afflicted with this blood poisoning can die very quickly from septic shock or ARDS.. Fellow employees described the man as competent and fully capable of handling the bacteria he was working with and the chief ...

Karch kept himself awake with coffee, and to relax he went for walks with his German shepherd. Can you imagine what Im going through? he wrote in an email to Phillip Tarr at Washington University in St. Louis. His response came at 4:27 a.m.: Epidemics are for younger men. Tarr, the second major EHEC expert next to Karch, had also never heard of an O104:H4 outbreak.. In the email, Karch speculated over why the disease wasnt happening in children, as is normally the case, but only in adults. And why was the infection striking more people that ever before in Germany - so many, in fact, that dialysis stations in several hospitals were almost full?….

Cedecea is a genus of extremely rare bacteria of the family Enterobacteriaceae. The name of this genus was derived from CDC, the abbreviation for the Centers for Disease Control where the initial members of this genus were discovered. This genus resembles no other group of Enterobacteriaceae. Cedecea bacteria are Gram-negative, bacillus in shape, motile, nonencapsulated, and nonspore-forming. The strains of Cedecea appear to be similar to those of Serratia. Both Cedecea and Serratia are lipase positive and resistant to colistin and cephalothin; however, Cedecea is unable to hydrolyze gelatin or DNA. Cedecea bacteria were discovered in 1977 by a group of scientists at the CDC and were initially named Enteric Group 15. In 1980, Patrick A. D. Grimont and Francine Grimont proposed the genus name of Cedecea for this group. This particular name was given to Enteric Group 15 for the abbreviation of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) where the group of bacteria was discovered. At this time, six ...
We show in this study that P. aeruginosa, already known for its swimming and twitching motility, is also able to propagate on semisolid surfaces by swarming. This makes P. aeruginosa one of the rare bacteria to possess three types of motility. Swarming, described so far only for peritrichously flagellated organisms, requires in P. aeruginosa the interplay of several features, namely amino acids as a nitrogen source, the presence of both flagella and type IV pili, and the secretion of rhamnolipids as a surface-active compound.. The surprising finding that P. aeruginosa swarmer cells can express two polar flagella is in agreement with a recent report of afleN mutant of P. aeruginosa (13) which was found to express between three and six polar flagella. Although the fleN mutant was nonmotile, this observation suggests that flagellum number is indeed regulated in this organism. Swarming could be a natural situation where flagellum upregulation could provide a more efficient propagation on semisolid ...

Strain JC163T exhibited catalase activity but not oxidase activity. Using the API 20E system, positive reactions were obtained for indole production, β-galactosidase and glucose, mannitol, sorbitol and rhamnose fermentation. E. massiliensis is susceptible to ticarcillin, imipenem, trimethoprim/sulfamthoxazole, gentamicin, amikacin, and colimycin but resistant to fosfomycin and nitrofurantoin. By comparison with E. arachidis, its phylogenetically-closest neighbor, E. massiliensis differed in arginine dihydrolase, ornithine decarboxylase, citrate and succinate fermentation [19].. Matrix-assisted laser-desorption/ionization time-of-flight (MALDI-TOF) MS protein analysis was carried out as previously described [52]. Briefly, a pipette tip was used to pick one isolated bacterial colony from a culture agar plate and spread it as a thin film on a MTP 384 MALDI-TOF target plate (Bruker Daltonics, Germany). Twelve distinct deposits were done for strain JC163T from twelve isolated colonies. Each smear ...
A new study sheds light on a powerful tool that may detect signs of Alzheimers disease before patients show any symptoms of cognitive decline: the home computer.. An early online version of this paper detailing the findings has been published and is scheduled for publication in the Journal of Alzheimers Disease.. OHSU researchers have found a significant correlation between infrequent daily computer use and brain imaging signs commonly seen in early-stage Alzheimers patients.. Using an MRI scan, the researchers measured the volume of the hippocampus - a brain region integral to memory function - in adults aged 65 years and older who were cognitively intact and dementia-free.. Diminished hippocampal volume is a well-known sign, or biomarker, of Alzheimers disease and the eventual development of dementia.. The study, led by Lisa Silbert, M.D., with the OHSU Layton Center for Aging & Alzheimers Disease, found that an additional hour of computer use a day was associated with a .025 percent ...

In October 2006 I had a seizure and passed out. After a series of tests it was confirmed that I had a brain tumor. I had brain surgery and was diagnosed with a malignant grade IV glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). I then had radiation and monthly chemotherapy in pill form with Temodar.. At the time of my diagnosis the doctors at Oregon Health and Sciences (OHSU) in Portland, Oregon speculated I had 3 to 18 months to live, with 12 months being the norm with this diagnosis. (Senator Kennedy, with the same diagnosis lasted 14 months.) It is now out 53 months since my diagnosis and I am doing fine. I have MRIs every four months - and all have been clear. There is no indication that the tumor area is active. (By the way, I wondered if the original diagnosis was incorrect, so I asked for a second opinion. A team at OHSU reviewed my brain tissue - and the original diagnosis was correct.). Apparently I am in a very small group of 1% - 2% who have lived this long with a grade IV GBM. However, there are ...

As neurologists, we thought ischemia killed the neurons and that they were irreversibly lost from the brain. But this new data challenges that notion by showing that ischemia, or low blood flow to the brain, can alter the maturation of the neurons without causing the death of these cells. As a result, we can focus greater attention on developing the right interventions, at the right time early in development, to promote neurons to more fully mature and reduce the often serious impact of preterm birth. We now have a much more hopeful scenario, said Stephen Back, M.D., Ph.D., lead investigator and professor of pediatrics and neurology in the Papé Family Pediatric Research Institute at OHSU Doernbecher Childrens Hospital..... ...

Researchers at Oregon Health & Science University Doernbecher Childrens Hospital have identified a promising new approach to overcoming drug resistance in children with an extremely aggressive childhood muscle cancer known as alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma. Their findings are published online this week in the journal Molecular Cancer Therapeutics and will be featured on the cover of the journals print edition next month.. Rhabdomyosarcoma accounts for more than 50 percent of all soft-tissue cancers in children. Even after extensive therapy, the survival rate among alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma patients with advanced disease is less than 20 percent. Dismal outcomes such as these are what keep researchers in the Pediatric Cancer Biology Program at OHSU Doernbecher working around the clock toward a breakthrough.. Despite our best efforts, outcomes for metastatic alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma have not improved for decades. Thats why our findings are significant. Our clinical partners now have a new method of ...
Portland, Ore. - Oregon Health & Science University Knight Cancer Institute researchers found that the GRB7 gene drives an aggressive form of breast cancer and acts independently of the HER-2 gene, known to be a stimulator of breast cancer growth. Isolating the role of this gene could ultimately help fine-tune a patients treatment and enable physicians to provide a more accurate prognosis. The study, published online this month by Breast Cancer Research and Treatment, established that levels of GRB7, or growth factor receptor bound protein seven, are important on their own as a marker for aggressive breast cancer. Previously it was understood that patients whose breast cancer tumors tested positive for high levels of HER-2, the protein human epidermal growth factor receptor-2, tended to have a more aggressive form of the disease than patients whose tumors did not have elevated levels of this protein. However, OHSU Knight Cancer Institute researchers found that the protein driving this ...

I hope you enjoyed Brain Awareness Week (BAW) this year. I was busy in Seattle, Washington, and Portland, Oregon, this year. On March 5, 320 students from local schools came to the University of Washington for the 2002 BAW Open House. Students were treated to an interactive assembly by the Pacific Science Center/Group Health Cooperative Brain Power Team and then participated in activities at exhibits sponsored by researchers, clinicians and staff of laboratories and patient support groups. For photos and more information about the open house, please see:. http://faculty.washington.edu/chudler/baw2002.html. BAW Organizers in Portland put together a great program this year. The Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU) invited me to speak with about 300 K-12 teachers on March 10. OHSU also partnered with the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) to create a Brain Fair with interactive exhibits for museum visitors. I teamed with David Heil (former host of Newtons Apple) for Brain Games ...
Image Credit: Thinkstock.com. September 11, 2013 Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A promising new AIDS vaccine being developed at Oregon Health & Science University has demonstrated the capacity to effectively remove all traces of an AIDS-causing virus from non-human primates, according to a newly published report in the journal Nature. The vaccine is being tested on a primate form of HIV, called simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), which causes AIDS in monkeys. After working further to refine the vaccine, OHSU scientists said they hoped an HIV-form of the potential vaccine could soon be tested in human subjects. To date, HIV infection has only been cured in a very small number of highly-publicized but unusual clinical cases in which HIV-infected individuals were treated with anti-viral medicines very early after the onset of infection or received a stem cell transplant to combat cancer, said Dr. Louis Picker, associate director of the OHSU Vaccine and Gene Therapy ...
The Lund Report (Portland, Ore.), Jan. 26, 2016. The Affordable Care Act was expected to revolutionize healthcare in the US. But is access to healthcare easier? Have costs gone up or down? A Portland City Club forum puts tough questions to Oregon Health & Science University professors.. Healthcare is a $3 trillion industry in the U.S. with one out of every $5 passing through the hands of someone working in the industry, Dr. Samuel Metz of Physicians for a National Health Program, told a City Club audience Monday night.. And, everyone agreed costs are not going down. The best forecast Ive seen shows healthcare (costs) will rise faster than GDP by about one percent, a year said John McConnell, an economist who heads OHSUs Center for Health Systems Effectiveness.. New, high-cost drugs put additional cost pressure on the system, and the stock market sees more money to be made in high-tech solutions that dont give what McConnell called a return on health.. Competition between large health ...
The researcher, Frederick W. Fraunfelder, M.D., assistant professor of ophthalmology in the OHSU School of Medicine and the OHSU Casey Eye Institute, found side effects ranging from dry eye to retinal hemorrhages and transient visual loss. Most of the side effects were associated with higher doses and topical application. While none of the reported cases caused permanent damage, many could have if the patient had not discontinued use of the product. A large segment of the population uses herbal medicines and nutritional supplements, many times without the treating physician s knowledge, said Fraunfelder, who also is director of the National Registry of Drug-Induced Ocular Side Effects based at the Casey Eye Institute. These products can cause ocular side effects and clinicians need to recognize these adverse events ...
