Genetic Organization and Iron-Responsive Regulation of the Brucella abortus 2 3-Dihydroxybenzoic Acid Biosynthesis Operon a Cluster of Genes Required for Wild-Type Virulence in Pregnant Cattle 2011 82071 Brucella abortus reportedly produces the monocatechol siderophore 2 3-dihydroxybenzoic acid (2 3-DHBA) in response to iron limitation. Nucleotide sequence analysis of the cloned DHBA biosynthesis locus from virulent B. abortus 2308 and genetic comple...
Opsonized Virulent Brucella abortus Replicates within Nonacidic Endoplasmic Reticulum-Negative LAMP-1-Positive Phagosomes in Human Monocytes 2011 82071 Cells in the Brucella spp. are intracellular pathogens that survive and replicate within host monocytes. Brucella maintains persistent infections in animals despite the production of high levels of anti-Brucellaspecific antibodies. To determine the e...
Production of the Siderophore 2 3-Dihydroxybenzoic Acid Is Required for Wild-Type Growth of Brucella abortus in the Presence of Erythritol under Low-Iron Conditions In Vitro 2011 82071 Production of the siderophore 2 3-dihyroxybenzoic acid (2 3-DHBA) is required for the wild-type virulence of Brucella abortus in cattle. A possible explanation for this requirement was uncovered when it was determined that a B. abortus dhbC mutant (B...
RecA and RadA Proteins of Brucella abortus Do Not Perform Overlapping Protective DNA Repair Functions following Oxidative Burst 2011 82071 Very little is known about the role of DNA repair networks in Brucella abortus and its role in pathogenesis. We investigated the roles of RecA protein DNA repair and SOS regulation in B. abortus. While recA mutants in most bacterial species are hyper...
