- ... Streptococcus suis (SS) is a major pathogen in the swine industry, and also an important zoonotic agent for humans. The novel SS cell surface protein, AtlASS, comprising the special GW module and N-acetylmuramidases domain, was designated as a putative autolysin. Indeed, the atlASS deletion mutant almost completely lost its activity in Triton X-100 induced bacterial autolysis, while the wild-type ...

- ... Streptococcus suis represents a key antibiotic resistance gene reservoir and an important pathogen for humans and animals. Resistance can be spread through horizontal gene transfer of chromosome-borne mobile genetic elements; however, the exact mechanism by which this occurs remains poorly understood. In the present study, we identified and characterized a novel 82-kb integrative conjugative eleme ...
