Chemical compound and disease context of Campylobacter


Biological context of Campylobacter


Anatomical context of Campylobacter

  • JlpA of Campylobacter jejuni interacts with surface-exposed heat shock protein 90alpha and triggers signalling pathways leading to the activation of NF-kappaB and p38 MAP kinase in epithelial cells [20].
  • Outer membranes were isolated from type strains and wild-type isolates of Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli by sodium lauryl sarcosinate extraction, and the polypeptide complement and lipopolysaccharide (LPS) content were analyzed by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis [21].
  • Transmission electron microscopy and viable counts made after killing of extracellular bacteria by gentamicin support the fact that associated Campylobacter spp. are adherent to the cell membrane and are internalized into cytoplasmic vacuoles [22].
  • We have demonstrated expression of proinflammatory cytokines and chemokines in response to Campylobacter infection in avian primary chick kidney cells and the avian macrophage cell line HD11 [23].
  • Stock cultures of Campylobacter jejuni (n = 27) and C. coli (n = 3) were correctly confirmed to the genus level by latex agglutination when tested in pure cultures or isolated from seeded human feces [24].
