Gene context of Bartonella

  • Activation of SAPK/JNK-1 and 2, and p38 MAPKs in signalling pathways, was also detected during infection with Bartonella, as was increased binding activity of AP-1 transcription factor [23].
  • Use of rpoB gene analysis for detection and identification of Bartonella species [24].
  • Molecular analysis of riboflavin synthesis genes in Bartonella henselae and use of the ribC gene for differentiation of Bartonella species by PCR [25].
  • The groEL genes of both Bartonella species were amplified, sequenced and compared to other known groEL genes [26].
  • Oligonucleotide primers which permit the amplification of an ftsZ fragment from each of the Bartonella species without amplifying DNA from the other two species were designed [27].
