Population genetic analysis of Bartonella bacilliformis isolates from areas of peru where Carrion's disease is endemic and epidemic. (1/12)

Carrion's disease is caused by infection with the alpha-proteobacterium Bartonella bacilliformis. Distribution of the disease is considered coincident with the distribution of its known vector, the sand fly Lutzomyia verrucarum. Recent epidemics of B. bacilliformis infections associated with atypical symptomatology in nonendemic regions have raised questions regarding the historic and present distribution of this bacterium and the scope of disease that infection causes. Phylogenetic relationships and genomic diversity of 18 B. bacilliformis isolates (10 isolates from a region where Carrion's disease is epidemic, Cuzco, Peru, and 8 isolates from a region where Carrion's disease is endemic, Caraz, Peru) were assessed using genomic data generated by infrequent restriction site PCR and gene sequence analysis of the flagellin gltA and ialB genes. A population genetic analysis of the genomic diversity suggests that what was once considered an epidemic region of Peru did not result from the recent introduction of B. bacilliformis.  (+info)

Characterization and expression analysis of the groESL operon of Bartonella bacilliformis. (2/12)

The groESL operon of Bartonella bacilliformis, a facultative intracellular, Gram-negative bacterium and etiologic agent of Oroya Fever, was characterized. Sequence analysis revealed an operon containing two genes of 294 (groES) and 1632 nucleotides (groEL) separated by a 55-nt intergenic spacer. The operon is preceded by a 72-nt ORF (ORF1) that encodes a hypothetical protein with homology to a portion of the HrcA repressor for groESL. A divergent fumarate hydratase C (fumC) gene lies further upstream. Deduced amino acid sequences for B. bacilliformis GroEL and GroES revealed a high degree of identity with homologues from other Bartonella and alpha-Protebacteria. A single transcriptional start site (TSS) was mapped 79 nucleotides upstream of the groES start codon, regardless of incubation temperature. The TSS was located immediately 5' to a potential controlling inverted repeat of chaperonin expression (CIRCE) element and is preceded by a sigma70-like promoter. The operon is followed by a predicted rho-independent transcriptional terminator. Northern blot analysis indicated that groES and groEL are co-transcribed as a single mRNA of approximately 2.4 kb. A 6-h time course analysis by qRT-PCR showed that groEL expression increases 1.3-fold within 30 min of a temperature upshift from 30 to 37 degrees C, with maximum transcription reached after 60 min (approximately 4.3-fold), followed by a steady decrease to background (30 degrees C) transcription levels by 6 h. Western blot analysis revealed a 1.4- and 1.5-fold increase in GroEL synthesis following a temperature upshift or by inhibiting DNA supercoiling with coumermycin A1, respectively. Functional expression and complementation of temperature-sensitive Escherichia coli groES or groEL mutants with the cloned operon allowed them to grow at otherwise restrictive temperatures.  (+info)

Bartonella bacilliformis GroEL: effect on growth of human vascular endothelial cells in infected cocultures. (3/12)

Bartonella are the only bacteria known to induce angioproliferative lesions of the human vasculature and liver during infection. Previous work from our lab suggests that GroEL participates in the mitogenic response observed in HUVEC cultures supplemented with the soluble fraction of Bartonella bacilliformis. Work in this study shows that exposure to high concentrations of the fraction is actually cytotoxic for HUVECs. To analyze this phenomenon, live B. bacilliformis-HUVEC cocultures were employed to study the effect of excess bacterial GroEL on the host cell during active infection. Four B. bacilliformis strains were generated to produce varying levels of GroEL. HUVEC cocultures with LSS100, a strain that synthesizes markedly greater quantities of GroEL relative to others, significantly accelerates apoptosis of the cocultured HUVECs relative to other strains. Acceleration of apoptosis can be inhibited by Z-VAD-FMK, a pan-caspase inhibitor. Time course data show that, at 18 h of infection, both LSS100 and control strains significantly inhibit spontaneous apoptosis of cocultured HUVECs, as previously reported for other Bartonella species. However, by 48 h, LSS100 significantly increases apoptosis of the host cell. We hypothesize that intracellular Bartonella GroEL functions as an Hsp60 analogue, a eukaryotic orthologue known to accelerate pro-caspase 3 activation by enhancing its vulnerability to upstream activator caspases. These data suggest another strategy whereby Bartonella may regulate host cell growth.  (+info)

Molecular mechanisms of resistance to antibiotics in Bartonella bacilliformis. (4/12)

OBJECTIVES: Bartonella bacilliformis is the aetiological agent of Carrion's disease. Although ciprofloxacin, rifampicin and erythromycin have been successfully used in the treatment of the disease, failures and relapses have been reported. The objective of our study was to select in vitro mutants resistant to antibiotics in order to determine the frequency of mutations and to characterize the mechanism of resistance at the molecular level. METHODS: Antibiotic-resistant mutants were selected by serial passages of bacteria on blood agar plates containing antibiotics. Candidate genes involved in resistance were amplified and sequenced and compared in order to look at mutations associated with antibiotic resistance. RESULTS: Ciprofloxacin-, rifampicin- and erythromycin-resistant mutants were obtained after five, three and four passages, respectively. Conversely, no mutant was obtained with either gentamicin or doxycycline even after 16 passages. The ciprofloxacin mutant contained an amino acid change at position 87 (Asp --> Asn) in its quinolone resistance-determining region of the DNA gyrase protein, whereas the rifampicin-resistant strain had an amino acid change at position 531 (Ser --> Phe) in the rifampicin resistance-determining region of the rpoB gene. Similarly, the erythromycin-resistant mutant showed an A2058G mutation in the 23S rRNA gene. CONCLUSIONS: According with the current knowledge on the treatment of human bartonellosis, we believe that doxycycline in association with gentamicin may be the preferred regimen for the treatment of the acute and eruptive stages of Carrion's disease, but clinical trials are warranted to support our findings.  (+info)

Isolation and characterization of Bartonella bacilliformis from an expatriate Ecuadorian. (5/12)

Carrion's disease is typically biphasic with acute febrile illness characterized by bacteremia and severe hemolytic anemia (Oroya fever), followed by benign, chronic cutaneous lesions (verruga peruana). The causative agent, Bartonella bacilliformis, is endemic in specific regions of Peru and Ecuador. We describe atypical infection in an expatriate patient who presented with acute splenomegaly and anemia 3 years after visiting Ecuador. Initial serology and PCR of the patient's blood and serum were negative for Bartonella henselae, Bartonella quintana, and B. bacilliformis. Histology of splenic biopsy was suggestive of bacillary angiomatosis, but immunohistochemistry ruled out B. henselae and B. quintana. Bacilli (isolate EC-01) were subsequently cultured from the patient's blood and analyzed using multilocus sequence typing, protein gel electrophoresis with Western blotting, and an immunofluorescence assay (IFA) against a panel of sera from patients with Oroya fever in Peru. The EC-01 nucleotide sequences (gltA and internal transcribed spacer) and protein band banding pattern were most similar to a subset of B. bacilliformis isolates from the region of Caraz, Ancash, in Peru, where B. bacilliformis is endemic. By IFA, the patient's serum reacted strongly to two out of the three Peruvian B. bacilliformis isolates tested, and EC-01 antigen reacted with 13/20 Oroya fever sera. Bacilliary angiomatosis-like lesions were also detected in the spleen of the patient, who was inapparently infected with B. bacilliformis and who presumably acquired infection in a region of Ecuador where B. bacilliformis was not thought to be endemic. This study suggests that the range of B. bacilliformis may be expanding from areas of endemicity in Ecuador and that infection may present as atypical clinical disease.  (+info)

Susceptibility of owl monkeys (Aotus nancymaae) to experimental infection with Bartonella bacilliformis. (7/12)

Bartonellosis, caused by Bartonella bacilliformis, is a clinically significant disease in parts of South America, where it is characterized by fever and hemolytic anemia during the often-fatal acute stage and warty skin eruptions during chronic disease. In this study, we evaluated owl monkeys (Aotus nancymaae) as a potential model for studying the immunogenicity and pathology of bartonellosis. Two groups of animals (n = 3 per group) received either 9.5 x 10(7) CFU B. bacilliformis by the ID route or 1.1 x 10(6) CFU by the IV route and were followed for 140 d. Animals were evaluated by physical exam, complete blood count or hematocrit (or both); infection was confirmed by Giemsa staining of blood smears, PCR amplification, and blood culture. On days 7 and 21, Giemsa-stained blood smears from both groups contained organisms (1% to 4% of erythrocytes). All blood cultures and PCR tests were negative. Complete blood counts and chemistry panels showed no difference from baseline. Serology revealed a greater than 4-fold increase in the IgM titer (compared with baseline levels) in the 3 animals from the ID group and 1 animal from the IV group. On day 35, a dermal lesion was excised from the inguinal region of 1 monkey from each group, with a second lesion excised on day 84 from the same monkey in the IV group. However the histopathology and immunostaining of these samples were not consistent with B. bacilliformis. The present study shows that owl monkeys can be infected with B. bacilliformis, but additional dosage studies are necessary to evaluate the usefulness of this species as a disease model for human bartonellosis.  (+info)

Bartonella bacilliformis, endemic pathogen of the Andean region, is intrinsically resistant to quinolones. (8/12)

 (+info)

Background: Bartonella bacilliformis is the etiological agent of Carrions disease, a neglected illness with a febrile lethal stage and a warty benign phase, being the human the only known reservoir. The diagnostic by microscopy in endemic areas is several times erroneous. Furthermore, the culture of this bacterium is time-consuming, being the diagnostic by PCR the easiest way to perform a correct diagnostic. The objective of this study was to evaluate the detection limit of three PCR schemes, designed to detect B.bacilliformis, both in blood and filter papers to test their potential use for transferring samples from endemic areas to reference centers. Moreover, the specificity was also observed as well as the applicability of the technique with clinical samples from different stages of the disease. Methods & Materials: Fragments of 16SrRNA and fla genes were amplified as well as the variable-intergenic region (its). The detection limit was determined by bacterial quantification with flow ...

Bartonella bacilliformis is the causative agent of bartonellosis (also known as Carrions disease), a biphasic disease endemic to Andean valleys in Peru, Columbia and Ecuador. It is transmitted by the sandfly Phlebotomus verrucarum which is limited to these areas. The bacterium was first isolated in 1909 by the Peruvian physician Albert Barton. Bartonellosis is usually characterized by two distinctive stages: a sudden (acute), potentially life-threatening illness associated with high fever and decreased levels of circulating red blood cells (i.e., hemolytic anemia) called Oroya fever. Mortality rates of up to 40-80% in untreated patients are reported. The second phase, which can take between 2 weeks to several years to manifest is characterized by a chronic, benign skin (cutaneous) eruption consisting of raised, reddish-purple nodules on the head and extremities (called Verruga peruana).

Bartonella bacilliformis is a tropical bacterial pathogen responsible for Carrións disease in humans. The lack of a system for random mutagenesis has greatly hindered our ability to efficiently study the agents molecular biology. Here, we report the first transposon (Tn) mutagenesis of B. bacilliformis, generation of a mutant library, and confirmation of five mutant strains by arbitrarily-primed PCR coupled with nucleotide sequencing. To accomplish this, B. bacilliformis strain JB584 was transformed by electroporation with the plasmid pSAM-Rl; a vector initially intended for use in Rhizobium species. pSAM-Rl contains a transposase and a Tn encoding a kanamycin-resistance gene, allowing for selection and maintenance of the integrated Tn in the B. bacilliformis genome. One mutant, designated JB584-4B2, was identified as having its flgI gene disrupted by the Tn. The flgI gene encodes the FlgI protein, an essential component in the P-ring used in the flagellar motor of bacteria. Thus, the motility

During May 1998, we conducted a case-control study of 357 participants from 60 households during an outbreak of acute bartonellosis in the Urubamba Valley, Peru, a region not previously considered endemic for this disease. Blood and insect specimens were collected and environmental assessments were done. Case-patients (n = 22) were defined by fever, anemia, and intra-erythrocytic coccobacilli seen in thin smears. Most case-patients were children (median age = 6.5 years). Case-patients more frequently reported sand fly bites than individuals of neighboring households (odds ratio [OR] = 5.8, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.2-39.2), or members from randomly selected households > or = 5 km away (OR = 8.5, 95% CI = 1.7-57.9). Bartonella bacilliformis isolated from blood was confirmed by nucleotide sequencing (citrate synthase [g/tA], 338 basepairs). Using bacterial isolation (n = 141) as the standard, sensitivity, specificity, and positive predictive value of thin smears were 36%, 96%, and 44%,

In this study, we demonstrate that members of the α and ε Proteobacteria, including three important human pathogens, C. jejuni, H. pylori, and Bartonella bacilliformis, possess flagellin molecules that cannot be recognized by TLR5. Their unique flagellin sequences contain amino acid differences in the TLR5 recognition site that permit TLR5 evasion, as well as compensatory mutations that preserve bacterial motility.. This study independently confirms the location of the TLR5 recognition site on flagellin. Flagellins TLR5-stimulatory activity lies predominantly in the N-terminal D1 domain, centered around amino acids 89-96, but requires additional contribution from the D2-D3 and the C-terminal D1 domain. Flagellin is a good adjuvant (e.g. see ref. 26), and this study and our previous report (3) clearly demonstrate that flagellins adjuvant activity is contained entirely within the amino acid sequence and is easily amenable to manipulation. Our studies indicate that proper folding and ...

Since 1984 Aotus nancymaae has been traded illegally from Peru and Brazil to Colombia for malaria research and later released to the wild in Colombian territory (Maldonado et al. 2009, Ruiz-Garcia et al. 2013). Trapping permits for malaria research are granted by the regional environmental authority, Corpoamazonia, to the biomedical facility FIDIC, in Leticia, Colombia. SINCHI (the Research Institute for the Colombian Amazon) and the Genetics Laboratory of the Colombian National University - IGUN-UNAL - (CITES Scientific Authorities) conducted a pilot project to gather baseline information on the genetics and ecology of Aotus spp. where the FIDIC had been trapping and releasing animals. Results from the UNAL/SINCHI study confirmed the presence of A. nancymaae in Colombian territory and suggested the existence of a historical distribution of A. nancymaae north of the Amazon River, as well as of another population of A. nancymaae, not of historical lineage but probably introduced in Colombia in ...
Abstract We report a case of cutaneous bartonellosis in a 24-year-old Italian woman. Soon after returning from a seven-month stay in a central area of Peru at an altitude of 3,130 meters, she developed high fever, headache, and muscle and joint pain that resolved after antibiotic therapy. Two months later, she presented with disseminated, painless, firm, purple, subcutaneous nodules on the neck, shoulders, legs, left eyelid, and hard palate, some of which developed into vegetating lesions. The diagnosis of bartonellosis was made on the basis of the clinical picture, the patient's medical history, the incubation period, the confirmatory histopathologic findings, and the response to treatment with chloramphenicol (500 mg four times a day for 14 days).

The goldfish has very humble beginnings, with its first natural mutation simply being a change in its colour. It dropped its brown demeanour for a yellow finish, and endeared itself to those who had initially reared it for food.
The Soviet Union was heavily dependent on rail transport, not least during the Russian Civil War and World War II, but also for industrialization according to the five-year plans. During the Soviet era, freight rail traffic increased 55 times (over that of the Russian empire just before World War I), passenger traffic increased almost 10 times, and the length of the rail network almost doubled. The Soviet Union had a railway network of 147,400 kilometres (91,600 mi) (excluding industrial railways), of which 53,900 kilometres (33,500 mi) were electrified. After the foundation of the Soviet Union the Peoples Commissariat of Railways (NKPS) (after 1946 renamed the Ministry of Railways (МПС)), the railway network expanded to a total length of 106,100 km by 1940 (vs. 81,000 km in 1917 which was exceeded in length only by the United States). The volume of freight hauled (in tonne-km) increased over 4 fold during this period. A notable project of the late 1920s and one of the centerpieces of the ...

Plague is still endemic in certain tropical and subtropical areas, and localised outbreaks are not uncommon especially in war situations, eg Vietnam, where there has been an increase in recent years. Relapsing fever in Africa and Bartonellosis (Carrions disease) are geographically limited in extent.. Among the protozoal infections, African trypanosomiasis is increasing both in West and East Africa but, in numerical terms, is still mainly of importance for its effect on domestic animals. South American trypano-somiasis (Chagas disease) extends through much of the sub-continent and appears to be responsible for considerable morbidity in parts of its distribution. Malaria and leishmaniasis are widespread and cause severe morbidity and mortality in many countries.. Of the tissue filariases, those due to Wuchereria bancrofti and Brugia malayi may produce serious deformity, while the skin dwelling parasite, Onchocerca volvulus, causes blindness in parts of tropical Africa and Central America.. While ...

If bovine growth hormones genetically modified the cow I would think there would be no need to use them anymore. By now all those herds of cows should be composed of genetically modified cows that were once calfs of said cows on BGH. BGH has been an issue for years. If it caused genetic modifications no one would need to use it anymore IMO. (There are human growth hormones sold to older people. If it caused genetic modification and made the people younger they wouldnt need to keep buying the product to continue to get results. It is a hormone which is much different than genetically modifying seed corn to have certain characteristics that carry on from all subsequent generations. Genetically Modified Organism means going in and modifying the original genetics of an organism. Natural mutations and other things do not count ...

Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Carrion (sexton) beetle head and thorax (Cryptarcha sp.). The genus Cryptarcha belongs to the family Nitidulidae and are common carrion beetles (also known as burying beetles or sap beetles). Cryptarchaspecies are part of the sub-family Cryptarchinae and have a life cycle of breeding on small carrion (dead animal carcass). Cryptarchabeetles will mate and lay eggs on a decaying carcass. If the carcass is small the adult male and female will dig the ground under it until the carcass is buried. When the burying beetle eggs hatch the larva then consume as much of the carcass as they can, pupate then become adults. Carrion beetles are important to forensic entomologists Magnification: x13 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres. - Stock Image C037/0312
No Funeral is a four piece Misanthropic, Doom/Sludge project hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Formed in 2011, Mankind is Carrion, Fit for Nothing is the 2017 EP release from No Funeral. From the commencement of Carrion - a verbal manifesto commands the listeners attention before switching to a doom influenced, sludge-groove tone. A very slight drone aspect features throughout Carrion adding to a nihilistic feel. The screams and guttural growls are consistently yet uncompromisingly brutal and offset each other continuously throughout Mankind is Carrion, Fit for Nothing. A nearly seamless continuance to Hyperalgesia demonstrate another musical aspect of No Funerals consistently tight and polished sound. Hyperalgesia displays a more doom influenced, nihilistic aspect to this release to be appreciated. Notably stronger drone aspects and use of samples add a slightly more misanthropic and unsettling touch to the concluding track of this release. Uncompromisingly confronting and ...

En la Universidad peruana donde enseño predomina el concepto de que los alumnos del 4 año de medicina, deben practicar y aprender pulcra y exquisitamente la anamnesis y el examen físico, para realizar con ellos el diagnóstico inicial de enfermedades. No obstante, en los últimos años en algunas universidades del Perú y en la mayoría del extranjero se agrega a lo anterior datos de exámenes auxiliares (tecnología, a veces muy sofisticada). El no hacerlo, para realizar diagnósticos iniciales de diversas enfermedades implica una devaloración de la avanzada tecnológica -cada vez mas precisa- con preferencia por datos acopiados artesanalmente. Algo tonto y desfasado ya que en la actualidad la anamnesis es realizada por robots que escuchan, hablan, ven, razonan, aprenden y son capaces de arribar a diagnósticos preliminares precisos. En la medida que los softwares de inteligencia artificial (AI), se perfeccionen los diagnósticos serán mas precisos, superando incluso al realizado por los ...

Heres a fascinating and squicky insight into the marvellous symbiosis between carrion beetles and the mites that live on them, courtesy of Greg Laden: From the carrion beetles perspective, there is a strong possibility that there are already fly larva (maggots) on the carcass eating it when it arrives to lay its eggs, or soon…
