Development of a Multilocus Sequence Typing Scheme for Characterization of Clinical Isolates of Acinetobacter baumannii: In this study a multilocus sequence typ
STARS is an alternative interface to staden for sequence assembly for sequence typing projects. Sequence typing projects typically involve the sequencing of the same gene, or gene fragment, many times in order to determine polymorphisms. The standard staden interfaces, pregap4 and gap4,are more suited to assembling long contigs. The STARS interface, on the other hand has been designed with sequence typing projects in mind and allows the assembly of large numbers of short contigs into the same database. These contigs can be retrieved and edited from the interface using a standard staden contig editor. The system also performs user logging etc and can therefore be used as a lab database for your projects. The software was initially designed for managing sequencing projects using Multi Locus Sequence Typing (MLST) of bacteria. It is available free of charge under the General Public License. This software is for UNIX systems and you will first need to install Staden. STARS is written by Man-Suen ...

Molecular methods have been used to study the epidemiology of MRSA in hospital, national, and global settings, with PFGE proving the most satisfactory method on the basis of its discriminatory ability and reproducibility (24, 30). The major disadvantage of PFGE and other methods that compare DNA fragments on gels is the difficulty of comparing the results obtained in different laboratories, even when reagents and conditions are standardized (3, 5, 34). MLST provides a highly discriminatory method that defines each isolate as a string of seven integers-the allelic profile-and which produces data that can be held in a central database on the World Wide Web, along with associated epidemiological data, and which can be interrogated via the Internet (16, 28). This approach allows any laboratory that uses MLST to submit the sequences of the seven gene fragments of an S. aureus isolate to the MLST website (http://mlst.ox.ac.uk), where an allelic profile can be assigned and compared with those of all of ...
We describe three cases of bloodstream infection caused by colistin-resistant Escherichia coli in patients in a tertiary hospital in Italy, between August 2016 and January 2017. Whole genome sequencing detected the mcr-1 gene in three isolated strains belonging to different sequence types (STs). This occurrence of three cases with mcr-1-positive E. coli belonging to different STs in six months suggests a widespread problem in settings where high multidrug resistance is endemic such as in Italy.
CAGEF provides typing services for isolated bacteria using Multi-Locus Sequence Typing (MLST), 16S rRNA, and species-specific gene sequencing. We use high-throughput Sanger and Next-Gen targeted amplicon sequencing to determine variants and compare these against the species-approriate pubMLST database or against available gene sequences to determine relationships. Besides providing the resulting sequences in FASTA format, we offer phylogenetic and eBURST network analyses.. Request a Quote. For typing, we require a minimum of 300ng of total DNA, at a minimum concentration of 20ng/μl. The OD260/280 for all samples should be at least 1.8.. ...
This tutorial illustrates how to create a Minimum Spanning Tree (MST) based on MLST allele numbers. The same steps are also applicable for clustering of other categorical character data sets such as MLVA.

The bacterial speciesMoraxella catarrhalishas been hypothesized as being composed of two distinct lineages (referred to as the seroresistant [SR] and serosensitive [SS]) with separate evolutionary histories based on several molecular typing methods, whereas 16S ribotyping has suggested an additional split within the SS lineage. Previously, we characterized whole-genome sequences of 12 SR-lineage isolates, which revealed a relatively small supragenome when compared with other opportunistic nasopharyngeal pathogens, suggestive of a relatively short evolutionary history. Here, we performed whole-genome sequencing on 18 strains from both ribotypes of the SS lineage, an additional SR strain, as well as four previously identified highly divergent strains based on multilocus sequence typing analyses. All 35 strains were subjected to a battery of comparative genomic analyses which clearly show that there are three lineages-the SR, SS, and the divergent. The SR and SS lineages are closely related, but distinct
Streptococcus suis is an important pathogen of pigs and occasionally causes serious human disease. However, little is known about the S. suis population structure, the clonal relationships between strains, the potential of particular clones to cause disease, and the relevance of serotype as a marker for epidemiology. Here we describe a multilocus sequence typing (MLST) scheme for S. suis developed in order to begin to address these issues. Seven housekeeping gene fragments from each of 294 S. suis isolates obtained from various S. suis diseases and from asymptomatic carriage representing 28 serotypes and nine distinct countries of origin were sequenced. Between 32 and 46 alleles per locus were identified, giving the ability to distinguish , 1.6 x 10(11) sequence types (STs). However only 92 STs were identified in this study. Of the 92 STs 18 contained multiple isolates, the most common of which, ST1, was identified on 141 occasions from six countries. Assignment of the STs to lineages resulted ...
Public Health England (PHE) has released information about how it uses the developing science of genomics to identify and characterise Salmonella isolates and detect related clusters of illness that could signify foodborne outbreaks.. The PHE Gastrointestinal Bacteria Reference Unit has been implementing genomic techniques since April 2014 and largely phased out conventional serotyping of Salmonella isolates since April 2015. It now employs Multi Locus Sequence Typing (MLST) to correlate isolates with traditional serotypes and then uses whole genome sequencing (WGS) to compare each isolate with an appropriate reference genome.. The aim is to identify individual nucleotide differences (single nucleotide polymorphisms or SNPs) and use them to identify clusters of related isolates. These clusters can then be investigated further by generating phylogenetic trees to study genome variation and ancestral relationships.. PHE says that WGS has been especially useful for detecting outbreaks of genetically ...
For the first time, we used multilocus sequence typing (MLST) to understand how Romanian group B streptococcus (GBS) strains fit into the global GBS population structure. Colonising isolates recovered from adult human females were tested for antibiotic resistance, were molecularly serotyped based on the capsular polysaccharide synthesis (cps) gene cluster and further characterised using a set of molecular markers (surface protein genes, pilus-encoded islands and mobile genetic elements inserted in the scpB-lmb intergenic region). Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis was used to complement the MLST clonal distribution pattern of selected strains. Among the 55 strains assigned to six cps types (Ia, Ib, II-V), 18 sequence types (STs) were identified by MLST. Five STs represented new entries to the MLST database. The prevalent STs were ST-1, ST-17, ST-19 and ST-28. Twenty molecular marker profiles were identified. The most common profiles (rib+GBSi1+PI-1, rib+GBSi1+PI-1, PI-2b and alp2/3+PI-1, PI-2a) ...
Pseudomonas Acinetobacter Klebsiella Stenotrophomonas Enterobacter Bacillus Burkholderia MLST scheme has been developed for ~40 bacteria so far
Staphylococcus aureus is an important pathogen of man, but is also able to colonize and cause disease in a wide variety of mammals and birds. An extended multilocus sequencing approach, involving multilocus sequence typing (MLST), sas typing, spa typing and agr typing, was used to examine the molecular diversity of 118 S. aureus isolates recovered from a range of host species and to compare these data with the known diversity of human-derived isolates. MLST revealed that the commonest animal-associated MLST types were ST133, ST5, ST71, ST97, ST126 and ST151. ST133 appears to be an ungulate-animal-specific genotype, as no evidence of ST133 associating with humans has yet been found in the literature. Novel and unique sas alleles were identified in the animal-associated strains that may represent animal-associated sas alleles. However, sas typing exhibited a lower typeability than MLST for the animal strains (91.3 %). Phylogenetic analyses using neighbour-joining and maximum-parsimony trees localized

The Gonococcal Resistance to Antimicrobials Surveillance Programme (GRASP) in England and Wales has monitored azithromycin resistance since 2001. In 2007, high-level azithromycin resistance (MICs >256 mg/L) was identified for the first time in six isolates, all of which were the same sequence type (ST 649).
Human mTOR-associated protein, LST8 homolog (mLST8) is a subunit of two protein complexes that associate with mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), known as mTORC1 and mTORC2. Both complexes regulate cell growth and survival in response to nutrient and hormonal signals. Within mTORC1, mLST8 interacts directly with and enhances the kinase activity of mTOR. In nutrient-poor conditions, mLST8 stabilizes the interaction between mTOR and regulatory-associated protein of mTOR (RAPTOR). The MLST8 gene is conserved over a wide range of species, from yeast to human. mLST8 is also known as Gable (GBL), GbetaL, mammalian lethal with SEC13 protein 8, TORC subunit LST8, target of rapamycin complex subunit LST8, G protein beta subunit-like, POP3, and WAT1.. ...

Author Summary The single-celled parasite Trypanosoma cruzi occurs in animals and insect vectors in the Americas. When transmitted to humans it causes a major public health problem, Chagas disease (American trypanosomiasis). T. cruzi is genetically diverse and currently split into six groups, known as TcI to TcVI. Multilocus sequence typing (MLST) is a method used for studying the population structure and diversity of pathogens. MLST involves sequencing the DNA of several different genes and comparing the sequences between isolates. MLST has not yet been developed and systematically applied to T. cruzi. He, we sequence nine T. cruzi genes, selecting a panel of four for lineage assignment and six for higher resolution studies of genetic diversity. Our results showed that one of the T. cruzi genetic groups is further subdivided into North and South American subpopulations. Furthermore, comparative analyses of the gene sequences gave new evidence of genetic exchange in T. cruzi. Application of MLST for
The group B streptococcus is a common cause of neonatal diseases, such as pneumonia, septicemia, and meningitis; but GBS is also known to cause invasive as well as noninvasive infections in adults. However, little is known about the genetic relationship among the isolates, the diversity of virulence, and possible differences in tropism among GBS isolates. We used MLST analysis and screened for the presence of mobile genetic elements among clinical isolates collected in two geographic regions in Sweden during a 10-year time span to investigate the population structure and dynamics among invasive GBS isolates.. By MLST analysis, 158 GBS invasive isolates collected from northern and western parts of Sweden were resolved into 29 STs and grouped into six genetic lineages, including five major clonal complexes and one singleton. The highly clonal structure has also been shown by a number of other methods, such as pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, multilocus enzyme electrophoresis typing, and randomly ...
The detection and control of American Foulbrood (AFB) is made more challenging due to a lack of evidence regarding the virulence mechanisms employed by this honeybee pathogen. Whilst incidence of this pathogen within the UK has recently declined, ~100 colonies were identified as infected with AFB in 2011 (to end of September), so AFB should still be considered a serious threat to honeybee health. It is known that within the species many phenotypes exist, and the infection caused by the phenotypes differs greatly. This PhD thesis presents several advances towards a greater understanding of the intra-specific differences occurring within the species. Chapter 2 evaluates the use of 16S rRNA sequencing as a method of Paenibacillus larvae identification, as well as exploring the use of this ribosomal subunit for differentiation of the species. The sequencing of two housekeeping (purH and PyrE) genes assesses the potential of a Multi Locus Sequence Typing (MLST) method, as a means of subspecies ...

Endemic melioidosis is caused by genetically diverse Burkholderia pseudomallei strains. However, clonal outbreaks (multiple cases caused by 1 strain) have occurred, such as from contaminated potable water. B. pseudomallei is designated a group B bioterrorism agent, which necessitates rapidly recognizing point-source outbreaks. Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and multilocus sequence typing (MLST) can identify genetically related isolates, but results take several days to obtain. We developed a simplified 4-locus multilocus variable number tandem repeat analysis (MLVA-4) for rapid typing and compared results with PFGE and MLST for a large number of well-characterized B. pseudomallei isolates. MLVA-4 compared favorably with MLST and PFGE for the same isolates; it discriminated between 65 multilocus sequence types and showed relatedness between epidemiologically linked isolates from outbreak clusters and between isolates from individual patients. MLVA-4 can establish or refute that a clonal ...
Salmonella enterica subspecies enterica is traditionally subdivided into serovars by serological and nutritional characteristics. We used Multilocus Sequence Typing (MLST) to assign 4,257 isolates from 554 serovars to 1092 sequence types (STs). The majority of the isolates and many STs were grouped into 138 genetically closely related clusters called eBurstGroups (eBGs). Many eBGs correspond to a serovar, for example most Typhimurium are in eBG1 and most Enteritidis are in eBG4, but many eBGs contained more than one serovar. Furthermore, most serovars were polyphyletic and are distributed across multiple unrelated eBGs. Thus, serovar designations confounded genetically unrelated isolates and failed to recognize natural evolutionary groupings. An inability of serotyping to correctly group isolates was most apparent for Paratyphi B and its variant Java. Most Paratyphi B were included within a sub-cluster of STs belonging to eBG5, which also encompasses a separate sub-cluster of Java STs. However, ...

Objectives Clearly associated to neonatal meningitis, Group B streptococci (GBS) classified as sequence type-17 (ST-17) are defined as the "highly virulent" clone amongst GBS. The aim of this study was to evaluate an easy and rapid method, recently described to detect ST-17 and ST-1 GBS, based on distinguishing peak-shifts present on the protein spectrum of these 2 sequence types, using a Microflex (Bruker) matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time of flight mass spectrometer (MALDI-TOF MS). Methods This study was performed on 67 multi locus sequence typed (MLST) GBS originated from the Belgian and Czech National Reference Centers, including 18 ST-17 and 16 ST-1. After culture on blood agar, an ethanol/formic acid extraction was performed on each ...

Our study revealed a high diversity of MLSTs among 102 bovine C. jejuni isolates obtained from three major Finnish slaughterhouses, representing 81 farms, in 2003. A total of 50 STs (nine CCs) were observed, nearly half of which were novel, emerging mostly from new combinations of known alleles and in two cases from new alleles carrying a one-nucleotide difference from alleles commonly found in cattle (pgm allele 2, tkt allele 1 and uncA allele 17). The emergence of a high number of novel STs could be explained by the life cycle of dairy cattle, providing a C. jejuni strain with the opportunity for long-lasting colonization and adaptation in the bovine host. However, re-infection with a different strain or multiple strains, and thus the occurrence of recombination events, cannot be excluded. The distribution of C. jejuni genotypes has previously been shown not to be random among farms, with farms no more than 1 km apart appearing to possess similar C. jejuni genotypes [12, 26], supporting the ...

Abstract:. Metagenomic characterization of microbial communities has the potential to become a tool to identify pathogens in human samples. However, software tools able to extract strain-level typing information from metagenomic data are needed. Low-throughput molecular typing schema such as Multilocus Sequence Typing (MLST) are still widely used and provide a wealth of strain-level information that is currently not exploited by metagenomic methods. We introduce MetaMLST, a software tool that reconstructs the MLST loci of microorganisms present in microbial communities from metagenomic data. Tested on synthetic and spiked-in real metagenomes, the pipeline was able to reconstruct the MLST sequences with ,98.5% accuracy at coverages as low as 1Ã-. On real samples, the pipeline showed higher sensitivity than assembly-based approaches and it proved successful in identifying strains in epidemic outbreaks as well as in intestinal, skin and gastrointestinal microbiome samples. ...
BACTERIA reproduce clonally but their genomes evolve by a variety of mechanisms, including point mutation, genome rearrangement, deletion, duplication, bacteriophage lysogeny, gene degradation, transposition, slippage mutation in DNA sequence repeats, and homologous and nonhomologous recombination (Maynard Smith et al. 1993; Feil et al. 1999, 2000; Lawrence and Hendrickson 2003). Recombination can occur when bacterial DNA enters the host cell via conjugation (which requires cell-to-cell contact between a donor and a receiver), transformation (uptake of naked DNA that remains from the lysis of another cell), or transduction (which involves packing of host DNA in a phage and release in the receiver).. The variety of evolutionary mechanisms by which bacteria evolve can pose problems when attempting to infer relationships between strains. Clonal relationships can be represented by a genealogy, which is a tree where each leaf is a member of the sample and each internal node is the most recent common ...

The genus Enterobacter belonging to the family Enterobacteriaceae is polyphyletic based on 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis [1-3]. Recently, eleven species belonging to the genus Enterobacter were transferred into the genus Cronobacter and three novel genera (Lelliottia, Pluralibacter, and Kosakonia) based on multilocus sequence analysis of protein-coding genes, rpoB (RNA polymerase β-subunit gene), gyrB (DNA gyrase subunit B gene), infB (initiation translation factor 2 gene), and atpD (ATP synthase β-subunit gene) [1]. Enterobacter cowanii, E. radicincitans, E. oryzae and E. arachidis were reclassified as Kosakonia cowanii, K. radicincitans, K. oryzae and K. arachidis, respectively [1]. Enterobacter sacchari is a new species named for nitrogen-fixing bacteria in association with sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum L.) [2,4] and has been reclassified as Kosakonia sacchari [3]. K sacchari is able to colonize sugarcane plants, fix N2 in association with sugarcane plants and promote plant growth [4]. ...

Since the 1980s, pertussis notifications in the United States have been increasing. To determine the types of Bordetella pertussis responsible for these increases, we divided 661 B. pertussis isolates collected in the United States during 1935-2009 into 8 periods related to the introduction of novel vaccines or changes in vaccination schedule. B. pertussis diversity was highest from 1970-1990 (94%) but declined to ≈ 70% after 1991 and has remained constant. During 2006-2009, 81.6% of the strains encoded multilocus sequence type prn2-ptxP3-ptxS1A-fim3B, and 64% were multilocus variable number tandem repeat analysis type 27. US trends were consistent with those seen internationally; emergence and predominance of the fim3B allele was the only molecular characteristic associated with the increase in pertussis notifications. Changes in the vaccine composition and schedule were not the direct selection pressures that resulted in the allele changes present in the current B. pertussis population ...
[Open access]In recent years, livestock-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (LA-MRSA) multi locus sequence type CC398 has spread widely in the livestock production in Europe.
