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?….

Advice to Management. Coworkers do not create tight bonds due to long hours away from hour due to commute, so they are more focused on their personal time than making work relationships. Having worked in industry before this, the benefits that are offered do not correlate with such low non-competitive wages based on the lack of efforts by HR to mitigate costs with programs to increase employee happiness. OHSU benefits are about on par with private industry/medical standards, but most likely above university standards. HR takes advantage of the University label to excuse the non-competitive wages and expects a high employee turn over to resolve any wage issues. HR does not help with employee/supervisor issues and expects employees to leave instead of disciplining supervisors resulting in lack of communication with supervisors with bad management. HR provides a lack of training for new supervisors coming into their positions and check-in programs. Company is not sensitive to employees political ...
The researchers used a vaccination method that involves creating and maintaining resistance by programming a portion of the bodys immune system - effector memory T-cells - to look out for HIV at the site of infection. "HIV appears to be vulnerable when it is first introduced into mucosal surfaces in the body," said Louis Picker, M.D., associate director of the OHSU VGTI and director of the VGTIs vaccine program. "However, once HIV spreads throughout the entire body, it replicates very rapidly and becomes difficult if not impossible to control. Our approach is to attack during this early period of vulnerability. The approach is similar to that of a homeowner who sprays their house with water before sparks land on the roof. This approach can prevent the roof from catching fire and, in the case of HIV, prevent the spread of the virus.". ...

PORTLAND, Ore. - Researchers at Oregon Health & Science University have discovered that a form of cell division typically associated with cancer called multipolar mitosis can yield diverse, viable cells capable of protecting the liver from injury and poisonous substances, such as pesticides, carcinogens or drugs. Their findings are published online in the journal Nature.. "Our findings show that the liver, which is known to have a tremendous capacity for regeneration, also has an amazing degree of diversity. A better understanding of this process may reveal why some individuals are more susceptible to different forms of liver injury than others, which could lead to new therapies for the treatment of liver disease," said Andrew Duncan, Ph.D., principal investigator and postdoctoral researcher in the lab of Markus Grompe, M.D., Papé Family Pediatric Institute, OHSU Doernbecher Childrens Hospital; and the Oregon Stem Cell Center at OHSU..

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 ...

It is an exciting development to see several technologies converge on this challenge so elegantly, says Kyle Ellrott, researcher with the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, assistant professor at the OHSU School of Medicine, and one of the challenge leaders. The cloud pilots are available to provide access to scalable compute to large datasets. With the SMC-Het, and now SMC-RNA, we employ an evaluation mechanism that produces reproducible bioinformatics methods. The results of these challenges can be used to solve important problems in cancer genomics. And at the end of the challenge any of the submitted techniques could be made available to the users the cloud pilots for them to apply to their own data. It is truly a dynamic combination that is set to accomplish great things..

David Dilts, PhD, MBA, Professor in the Division of Management at Oregon Health & Science University and a member of the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute management team, received a 2011 group merit award from the National Institutes of Health for his role in developing AccrualNet, a web-based system designed to help researchers navigate the process for recruiting participants to NIH clinical trials. He and the other co-developers were presented with the award during a ceremony in Bethesda.. "It is gratifying to see David Dilts work on this project receive such a prestigious award," Brian Druker, MD, Director of the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, said in a statement. "Improving the speed of completing clinical trials is crucial to accelerating progress against cancer, especially as cancer treatments become more specialized.". One of Dr. Dilts responsibilities within the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute is to help foster national efforts to streamline clinical trials to help advance personalized cancer ...
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 ...

Hi, Julia.. We had a similar issue. David did not have the gene deletions (1p, 19q) that would make Temodar more effective. Different mutation since we are battling anaplastic oligodendroglioma, not AA3, but still the same difficult choice. We did Temodar anyway. I also was devastated when Davids FISH evaluation came back without the deletions. Our doctor at OHSU strongly recommended taking Temodar, but another doctor thought we should just do radiation and save Temodar for later. Our doctor strongly disagreed and told us that Temodar and radiation would have a synergistic effect if taken together. So thats what David did---he took Temodar while he did radiation, and then he continued to take it until April of this year.. I am glad that we did Temodar. I believe that it was the right choice for us. We knew going in that the doctors expected it to only be effective for a short time. But they told us that about every chemo. David had two years and 5 months with no tumor progression---no tumor at ...
