Disease relevance of Rickettsia typhi


High impact information on Rickettsia typhi

  • Alu I sites in both the 17-kDa and citrate synthase PCR products obtained with the rickettsia-like agent and Rickettsia typhi were different even though both agents reacted with monoclonal antibodies previously thought specific for R. typhi [6].
  • Identification and molecular analysis of the gene encoding Rickettsia typhi hemolysin [7].
  • The rpoB gene of rifampin-resistant Rickettsia typhi (Rif mutant) and wild-type R. typhi were sequenced and compared [8].
  • Adenine nucleotide degradation by the obligate intracellular bacterium Rickettsia typhi [9].
  • The possibility was tested that the lysosomal stabilizer cortisone acetate might protect and thus enhance the growth of Rickettsia typhi in mouse L cells irradiated 6 days earlier [10].
