The study of Corynebacterium diphtheriae traces closely the development of medical microbiology, immunology and molecular biology. Many contributions to these fields, as well as to our understanding of host-bacterial interactions, have been made studying diphtheria and the diphtheria toxin.

Diphtheria Toxin Diphtheria toxin is an ADP-ribosyltransferase that inhibits host protein synthesis [78] and is synthesized by toxigenic strains of C. diphtheriae that harbour a prophage encoding the toxin []. Structure and function of diphtheria toxin: From pathology to engineering Article (PDF Available) in Toxin Reviews 21(4) October with 1, Reads How we measure 'reads'.

Anti-diphtheria toxin vaccination with toxoid started almost a century ago and still has a tremendous impact on public health, preventing each year the deaths of tens of thousands of children. More recently, sophisticated protein engineering of diphtheria toxin led to many biotechnological applications for research, and to the first approved.   Diphtheria is an infectious disease caused by the gram-positive bacillus Corynebacterium diphtheriae. Infection may lead to respiratory disease, cutaneous disease, or an asymptomatic carrier state. The word diphtheria comes from the Greek word for leather, which refers to the tough pharyngeal membrane that is the clinical hallmark of infection.

The vaccines for diphtheria is called DTaP. The vaccines for diphtheria is called DTaP. It’s normally given in a single shot with vaccines for diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis.

Diphtheria diphtheria (dĬfthēr´ēə), acute contagious disease caused by Corynebacterium diphtheriae (Klebs-Loffler bacillus) bacteria that have been infected by a bacteriophage. It begins as a soreness of the throat with fever. The bacteria lodge in the mucous membranes of the throat, producing virulent toxins that destroy the tissue.

The diphtheria bacillus was discovered and identified by German bacteriologists Edwin Klebs and Friedrich Löffler. In most cases the bacillus is transmitted in droplets of respiratory secretions expelled by active cases or carriers during speaking or coughing.

Diphtheria Journal   is recognized as Official site for the publication and indexing of Research in  Diphtheria. It is Authority to translate published research into Text and Reference. The best known and most widely studied species is Corynebacterium diphtheriae, the causal agent of the disease diphtheria.

Diphtheria is an upper respiratory tract illness characterized by sore throat, low fever, and an adherent membrane (called a pseudomembrane on. Diphtheria is caused by Corynebacterium diphtheiiae (genus Corynebacterium, the family Corynebacteriaceae) - a non-spore-forming gram-positive stick of the clavate shape.

Corynebacterium diphtheriae grows only on special nutrient media is the most common telluric medium). According to their biological properties, the corynebacteria of diphtheria are divided into three biovars: mittis ( Biology and Molecular Epidemiology of Diphtheria Toxin and the tox Gene Article Literature Review in The Journal of Infectious Diseases Suppl 1(Supplement 1):S March with Abstract.

The discovery of diphtheria toxin from culture medium of Corynehacterium diphtheriae was one of the greatest discoveries in medical history. Since this epoch-making change in medicine, diphtheria toxin has been studied, first to prevent disease and later Cited by: 2.

This study was commenced in At that time the curve of morbidity which was either stationary or declining in Western and Central Europe continued to rise in Rumania. According to the statistics of the Ministère de la Santé the morbidity due to diphtheria was perin and steadily increased to perby Author: M.

Ciuca, M. Marbé, C. Agapi, E. Alexa. Diphtheria is an acute, communicable disease caused by exotoxin-producing Corynebacterium diphtheriae. Review of pathology in archived cases and the literature shows that C. diphtheriae usually localizes in the upper respiratory tract, ulcerates the mucosa, and induces the formation of an inflammatory by: Leading Corynebacteria experts provide a description of the current state-of-the-art molecular biology toolbox available for Corynebacterium research, including global analyses techniques such as comparative genomics, transcriptome, proteome and metabolome analysis as well as the most recent knowledge on Corynebacterium promoter structures and vector systems.

This paper consists of seven sections dealing with the following aspects of the problems of diphtheria: (1) on the gravis and mtis types of C. diphtherias with special reference to their occurrence in Leningrad; (2) on the dissemina tion of diphtherial infection, latent and manifest, among populations of children with special reference to the development of herd immunity; (3) on the Author: Zdrodowski, C.

Halapine. The crystal structure of diphtheria toxin (DT) in complex with nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) has been determined by x-ray crystallography to Å resolution.

NAD binds to a cleft on the surface of the catalytic (C) domain of DT, interacting closely with the side chains of Cited by: Diphtheria toxin (DT), a 58 kDa protein secreted by lysogenic strains of Corynebacterium diphtheriae, causes the disease diphtheria in humans by gaining entry into the cytoplasm of cells and inhibiting protein synthesis.

Specifically, the catalytic (C) domain of DT transfers the ADP-ribose group of NAD to elongation factor-2 (EF-2), rendering EF-2 by:. Diphtheria is an infection caused by the bacterium Corynebacterium diphtheriae. Signs and symptoms may vary from mild to severe.

They usually start two to five days after exposure. Symptoms often come on fairly gradually, beginning with a sore throat and fever. In severe cases, a grey or white patch develops in the : Corynebacterium diphtheriae (spread by .Diphtheria is an acute disease caused by toxin-producing strains of Corynebacterium diphtheriae (in some cases also by Corynebacterium ulcerans) bacteria, that is known to colonise mucous membranes.

Following infection, after a usually short incubation period (2–5 days), the release of the cytotoxin may produce characteristic lesions on the.Tetanus disease is found in all parts of the world, but it more occurs in the location having hot and wet climates where the soil contains a lot of organic matter.

Causes of Tetanus. Tetanus is caused by the tetanus bacterium C tetani that are found in the soil and in animal faces and mouth.
