The usage and misusage of antibiotics in poultry, food-producing animals and human diseases have led to transmission of conjugative plasmids carrying antibiotic resistance genes from one microorganism to another, especially to the pathogenic bacteria. Multi-drug resistant Salmonella enterica serovar Infantis, an emerging serotype in poultry, has been spreading all around the world in a decade. Moreover, commensal microorganisms such as commensal Escherichia coli in the gut microbiota, functioning as a reservoir of antimicrobial resistance, of the warm-blooded hosts acquire antibiotic resistance by plasmid from Salmonella enterica serovars. The aim of this study was to identify the conjugative transfer of plasmids including multi-drug resistance genes from Salmonella enterica serovar Infantis to commensal susceptible E. coli in both of phenotypic and genotypic level. Salmonella Infantis isolates with different antibiotic resistance profiles involving streptomycin, sulfisoxazole, ampicillin, trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole, kanamycin, chloramphenicol, ciprofloxacin, cephalotin, nalidixic acid and tetracycline were selected as donor bacteria (n=10), while susceptible non-pathogenic E. coli isolate was used as a recipient. Applying filter paper mating procedure was used for conjugation. Transconjugant E. coli colonies were screened by phenotypic and genotypic methods. First, yellow colonies representing transconjugant E. coli colonies were determined on the selective XLD agar containing 10 μg/ml tetracycline in phenotypic level. After that, conjugation genes (i.e., traA, traE, traL, traJ, traG, traH, traI, traM, traR, traY, rfaG, rfaI, rfaJ, rfaL and rfbP), and the incompatibility group of plasmids were screened by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in genotypic level. This study contributes to recent and further studies related to the conjugative transmission of antibiotic resistance genes in Salmonella and E. coli, which is an arising serious problem worldwide.

Even though Escherichia coli (E. coli) is part of the intestinal microflora of healthy human beings and warm blooded animals, some strains of E. coli can be important food borne pathogens that can cause a wide spectrum of diseases, ranging from self-limiting to life threatening intestinal and extra-intestinal illnesses. Pathogenic E. coli that affect the intestines of humans have been grouped into six main pathotypes: Shiga-toxin-producing E. coli (STEC); of which enterohaemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) is a path...
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...

Salmonella is one of the most reported pathogens in foodborne outbreaks worldwide. In order to ensure safety of foods, farm-to-fork surveillance and control systems must be utilized. Development of numerous typing methods have improved the ability to detect salmonellosis outbreaks, enabling to trace the contaminated source from farm to fork. Facilitating prevention and regulation of techniques, knowledge of the epidemiology, genetics and ecology of Salmonella infections depend on the information provided by...
Discovery of non-carbohydrate inhibitors of aminoglycoside-modifying enzymes
Welch, KT; Virga, KG; Whittemore, NA; Özen, Can; Wright, E; Brown, CL; Lee, RE; Serpersu, EH (2005-11-15)
Chemical modification and inactivation of aminoglycosides by many different enzymes expressed in pathogenic bacteria are the main mechanisms of bacterial resistance to these antibiotics. In this work, we designed inhibitors that contain the 1,3-diamine pharmacophore shared by all aminoglycoside antibiotics that contain the 2-deoxystreptamine ring. A discovery library of molecules was prepared by attaching different side chains to both sides of the 1,3-diamine motif. Several of these diamines showed inhibito...
