- ... Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae is a Gram-negative bacterium and causative agent of porcine pleuropneumonia. This is a highly contagious disease that causes important economic losses to the swine industry worldwide. Penicillins are extensively used in swine production and these antibiotics are associated with high systemic clearance and low oral bioavailability. This may expose A. pleuropneumoniae ...

- ... Histophilus somni is an important pathogen of cattle and sheep. H. somni requires iron and can use ruminant transferrins as iron sources for growth. Here, we investigated the abilities of bovine (strains 649 and 2336) and ovine (strains 9L and 3384Y) isolates of H. somni to acquire iron from haemoglobins. Using growth assays, the bovine isolates were shown to acquire iron from bovine haemoglobin, ...
