A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

BACKGROUND: Internalin mediates entry of Listeria monocytogenes into some human cultured cell lines and crossing of the intestinal barrier in transgenic mice expressing its receptor, human E-cadherin, in enterocytes. The relevance of these findings for humans is challenged by the observation that some L. monocytogenes isolates express a truncated nonfunctional form of internalin.

METHODS: We investigated expression of internalin by use of immunoblot assay in 300 clinical strains obtained in France in a single year and a representative set of 150 strains obtained from food products during the same period.

RESULTS: Clinical strains expressed full-length internalin far more frequently (288/300 strains [96%]) than did strains recovered from food products (98/150 strains [65%]; odds ratio, 12.73; 95% confidence interval, 6.27-26.34; P<1 x 10(-7)). All 61 strains (100%) from pregnancy-related cases, 55 (98%) of 56 strains from patients with central nervous system infections, and 151 (93%) of 162 strains from patients with bacteremia expressed full-length internalin. All 110 strains belonging to serovar 4b, the most frequently implicated serovar in human listeriosis, expressed full-length internalin.

CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates the critical role of internalin in the pathogenesis of human listeriosis. It provides a molecular explanation for the predominance of serovar 4b among clinical strains and supports the usefulness of studying the expression of internalin as a marker of virulence in humans.
