Role of non-coding regulatory RNA in the virulence of human pathogenic vibrios
MetadataShow full item record
In recent decades, the identification of small non-coding RNAs in bacteria has revealed an important regulatory mechanism of gene expression involved in the response to environmental signals and to the control of virulence. In the family Vibrionaceae, which includes several human and animal pathogens, small non-coding RNAs (sRNAs) are closely related to important processes including metabolism, quorum sensing, virulence, and fitness. Studies conducted in silico and experiments using microarrays and highthroughput RNA sequencing have led to the discovery of an unexpected number of sRNAs in Vibrios. The present review discusses the most relevant reports regarding the mechanisms of action of sRNAs and their implications in the virulence of the main human pathogens in the family Vibrionaceae: Vibrio parahaemolyticus, V. vulnificus and V. cholerae.

Acute gastroenteritis caused by a Vibrio cholerae non-O1, non-O139 strain harboring a genetic region homologous to the VpaI-7 pathogenicity Island Gastroenteritis aguda causada por vibrio cholera no-O1, no-O139 que porta una región homóloga a la isla de p Ulloa F., M. Teresa; Porte T., Lorena; Braun, Stephanie; Dabanch, Jeannette; Fica Cubillos, Alberto; Henríquez A., Tania; Osorio, Carlos (2011)Pathogenic Vibrio cholerae isolates, the etiologic agents of cholera, generally express one of two O antigens (O1 or O139). Most environmental isolates are nonpathogenic and are referred to as "non-O1, non-O139". However ...
Pathogenicity island region of clinical and environmental strains of Vibrio parahaemolyticus, isolated in Chile Isla de patogenicidad de Vibrio parahaemolyticus en cepas chilenas clínicas y ambientales Núñez, Harold; Ulloa, María Teresa; Guerra, Fabiola; Osorio, Carlos G. (2009)Background: Most clinical isolates of Vibrio parahaemolyticus produce a major virulence factor known as the thermostable direct hemolysin (TDH). TDH is encoded by the tdh gene which is located in a genomic pathogenicity ...
