    Notes: Streptococcus suis NCTC10234 possesses five srtA homologs: srtA encodes sortase, which anchors surface proteins with an LPXTG motif to the cell wall, while the functions of the other four homologs (the srtBCD cluster and srtE) remain unknown. The genetic organization of the srtA region was found to be conserved in the 59 S. suis strains examined in this study. Although the srtA s in three of these strains showed strong sequence divergence, their functions were verified to be overlapping by genetic complementation, indicating the functional conservation of srtA s during the evolution of these strains. These results indicate the importance of an srtA-mediated cell wall sorting system for displaying proteins on the surface of S. suis.

    Notes: The gene encoding an outer membrane lipoprotein (OmlA) of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae strain WF83 (serotype 7 reference strain), designated omlA7, was sequenced. The amino acid sequence of OmlA7 showed 64.5 and 71.6% identity to that of OmlA from serotypes 1 (OmlA1) and 5 (OmlA5), respectively. The first 134 amino acids of OmlA7 were identical to those of OmlA5. A Southern blot analysis revealed the presence of a gene highly homologous to the omlA7 in the reference strains of serotypes 3, 4, 6, and 7. A Western blot analysis using a specific antiserum against a recombinant OmlA7 detected expression of the homologous proteins in the serotypes 4, 6, and 7 reference strains and a serotype 3 field strain, but not in a serotype 3 reference strain. The data demonstrate the third antigenically distinct OmlA is expressed in A. pleuropneumoniae.

    Notes: Abstract: To investigate the relationship of chondrocyte apoptosis and cartilage destruction, we performed in situ nick end labeling (ISNEL), electron microscopy, and im-munohistochemistry against apoptosis-related proteins, p53 and c-myc, in the articular cartilages of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA; n = 12) and osteoarthritis (OA; n = 12), and in control articular cartilages from patients with femoral neck fracture (n = 8). The distribution of stained chondrocytes was evaluated semiquantitatively in relation to the degree of cartilage destruction. ISNEL-positive chondrocytes with apoptotic morphological features were identified in a relatively early phase of cartilage destruction, and correlated positively and significantly in a number with the degree of cartilage degeneration. Comparison of RA and OA revealed a significantly greater number of ISNEL-positive chondrocytes in RA cartilage. In contrast, the specimens of normal subjects contained few cells with apoptotic changes. Similarly to the distribution of ISNEL staining, the expression of p53 and c-myc proteins was observed in chondrocytes within the degraded lesions, and showed a positive correlation with the number of ISNEL-stained cells. These results suggest that the degree of chondrocyte apoptosis is closely related to cartilage destruction and that chondrocytes in RA more readily undergo apoptosis than those in OA. The expression of p53 and c-myc proteins in ISNEL-positive areas may reflect the involvement of these proteins in the apoptotic process in articular chondrocytes in inflammatory arthritis.

    Notes: Abstract. A small cryptic plasmid designated pSSU1 was isolated from Streptococcus suis serotype 2 strain DAT1. The complete sequence of pSSU1 was 4975 bp and contained six major open reading frames (ORFs). ORF1 and ORF2 encode for proteins highly homologous to CopG and RepB of the pMV158 family, respectively. ORF5 encodes for a protein highly homologous to Mob of pMV158. ORF4 encodes for a protein highly homologous to orf3 of pVA380-1 of S. ferus, but its function is unknown. There was no similarity between ORF3 and ORF6 and other protein sequences. In this plasmid, the ORF1 (CopG protein) was preceded by two multiples of direct repeat and the conserved nucleotides that could be the double-strand origin (DSO) of rolling circle replication (RCR) mechanism. The ORF5 (Mob protein) was followed by a potential hairpin loop that could be the single-strand origin (SSO) of RCR mechanism. The sequence, which was complementary to the leader region of Rep mRNA, was homologous to the countertranscribed RNA (ctRNA) of pLS1. Moreover, a 5-amino acid conserved sequence was found in C terminal of Rep and putative Rep proteins of several pMV158 family plasmids. These observations suggest that this plasmid replicates by use of the rolling circle mechanism.

    Notes: Abstract. We have cloned and sequenced a gene encoding O-acetylserine lyase from Streptococcus suis. The gene encodes a protein of 309 amino acids with a calculated molecular mass of 32,038 Da. The deduced amino acid sequence showed more extensive similarities to the CysK proteins than to the CysM proteins of other bacteria. The cloned gene was inserted into a pTrcHisB histidine hexamer expression vector. A 38-kDa fusion protein was expressed in a cysMK auxotrophic mutant of Salmonella typhimurium and complemented the auxotrophic properties of the mutant. Furthermore, the transformants could grow in minimal defined media supplemented with not only sulfide but also thiosulfate as a sole sulfur source. These data indicated that the cloned gene encodes a protein that was a functional homolog of the CysM in S. typhimurium.
