Genomic Analysis Points to Multiple Genetic Mechanisms for Non-Transformable <i>Campylobacter jejuni</i> ST-50


By: C. Parker*, D. Villafuerte n, W. Miller*, S. Huynh*, M. Chapman*, Z. Hanafy n, J. Jackson III, M. Miller n, S. Kathariou n

author keywords: Campylobacter; transformation; antimicrobial resistance
TL;DR: The results reveal genetic associations leading to a non-transformable state among C. jejuni ST-50 strains, including functional DNase genes from bacteriophages and mutations within the cts-encoded DNA-uptake system, which impact the initial steps of the DNA uptake during natural transformation.

Differences in the Propensity of Different Antimicrobial Resistance Determinants to Be Disseminated via Transformation in Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli


By: Z. Hanafy n, J. Osborne n, W. Miller*, C. Parker*, J. Olson n, J. Jackson n, S. Kathariou n

author keywords: antimicrobial resistance; AMR; Campylobacter; transformation
TL;DR: Findings from this experimental model provide insights into factors that may impact transformation-mediated transfer of AMR leading to AMR dissemination in the agricultural ecosystem. (via Semantic Scholar)

Identification and Characterization of a Novel Genomic Island Harboring Cadmium and Arsenic Resistance Genes in Listeria welshimeri


By: S. Lee*, C. Parsons n, Y. Chen*, Z. Hanafy n, E. Brown* & S. Kathariou n

author keywords: Listeria welshimeri; Listeria genomic island 2 (LGI2); LGI2-3; heavy metal resistance; arsenic; cadmium
MeSH headings : Arsenic / toxicity; Bacterial Proteins / genetics; Bacterial Proteins / metabolism; Cadmium / toxicity; Drug Resistance, Bacterial; Genomic Islands; Listeria / drug effects; Listeria / genetics; Lyases / genetics; Lyases / metabolism
TL;DR: A novel LGI2 variant is described, LGI-3, in two L. welshimeri strains from an urban aquatic environment and intriguing hypotheses on the genetic diversity mediated by this island and its transfer among Listeria spp. (via Semantic Scholar)

Natural Horizontal Gene Transfer of Antimicrobial Resistance Genes in Campylobacter spp. From Turkeys and Swine


By: V. Guernier-Cambert, J. Trachsel*, J. Maki*, J. Qi*, M. Sylte*, Z. Hanafy n, S. Kathariou n, T. Looft*

author keywords: antimicrobial resistance; Campylobacter; transformation; turkey; swine; animal experiment; co-culture experiment; horizontal gene transfer
TL;DR: The potential for antimicrobial resistance transfer across Campylobacter species originating from turkeys and swine, which may have implications for farms hosting both species in close proximity, is highlighted. (via Semantic Scholar)
