Reconstruction of the temporal signaling network in salmonella infected human cells

2016
Budak, Güngör
Salmonella enterica is a bacterial pathogen whose mechanism of infection is usually through food sources. The pathogen proteins are translocated into the host cells to change the host signaling mechanisms either by activating or inhibiting the host proteins. In order to obtain a more complete view of the biological processes and the signaling networks and to reconstruct the temporal signaling network of the human host, we have used two network modeling approaches, the Prize-collecting Steiner Forest (PCSF) approach and the Integer Linear Programming (ILP) based edge inference approach by integrating a published temporal phosphoproteomic dataset of Salmonella-infected human cells and the human interactome. The final temporal signaling network conserves the information about temporality and directionality, while showing hidden entities in the signaling, such as the SNARE binding, mTOR signaling, immune response, cytoskeleton organization, and apoptosis pathways. Although the targets of Salmonella effectors such as CDC42, RHOA, 14-3-3δ, Syntaxin family, Oxysterol-binding proteins were not present in the phosphoproteomic dataset, they were revealed in the reconstructed signaling network. Structural analysis of these targets also revealed binding preferences of their neighbors. The application of such integrated approaches has a high potential to identify the clinical targets in infectious diseases, especially in the Salmonella infections.

Salmonella enterica is a bacterial pathogen that usually infects its host through food sources. Translocation of the pathogen proteins into the host cells leads to changes in the signaling mechanism either by activating or inhibiting the host proteins. Given that the bacterial infection modifies the response network of the host, a more coherent view of the underlying biological processes and the signaling networks can be obtained by using a network modeling approach based on the reverse engineering principl...
Virulence and antimicrobial resistance genes transfer mechanism between Salmonella Strains by means of Salmonella Genomic Island 1
Namlı, Şahin; Soyer, Yeşim; Department of Food Engineering (2018)
Salmonella, is responsible for significant part of the food borne diseases around the world and isolated abundantly from the food samples. In recent years, with the increasing trend of multidrug-resistance, Salmonella become an important threat for public health. Drug resistance leads inefficiency of antibiotic treatment and it is seemed as a very important problem worldwide as well for Turkey. Drug resistance acceptance mechanism has not been understood yet especially for Salmonella. Salmonella Genomic Isl...
Development of rapid dipstick assay for food pathogens, Salmonella, by optimized parameters
Çam, Dilek; Öktem, Hüseyin Avni (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018-10-25)
Salmonella is among the very important pathogens threating the human and animal health. Rapid and easy detection of these pathogens is crucial. In this context, antibody (Ab) based lateral flow assays (LFAs) which are simple immunochromatographic point of care test kits were developed by gold nanoparticles (GNPs) as labelling agent for Salmonella detection. For that purpose some critical parameters such as reagent concentrations on the capture zones, conjugate concentrations and ideal membrane type needed f...
Genomic characterization of cephalosporin, quinolone and macrolide resistance in Salmonella enterica
Konyali, Diala; Soyer, Yeşim; Bayramoğlu, Tuba Hande; Department of Biotechnology (2022-1-12)
Salmonella infections are considered a significant burden in developing and developed countries. Each year, Non-Typhoidal Salmonella (NTS) causes more than 90 million cases of gastroenteritis, 85% of which are food-borne. Salmonellosis is usually self-limiting in healthy adults but might be severe in risk groups. Fluoroquinolones, macrolides, and cephalosporins are recommended when antimicrobial treatment is necessary. However, Salmonella is increasingly showing resistance to these antimicrobials by chromos...
Isolation and Characterization of Salmonella Bacteriophages

Numerous foodborne infections and outbreaks are associated with Salmonella which makes it a challenge in terms of human health and economy. Therefore, reducing the prevalence of Salmonella in food and food processing areas is of great importance. Antibiotics are the substances that are commonly used in various stages of food production in order to fight against Salmonella. However, concerns related with the antibiotic use like antibiotic resistance give rise to pursuit of safer methods to eliminate Salmonel...
