Identification of vibrio cholerae pathogenicity

  1. 1. Mohan kumar yadavB.Sc-M.Sc Bioinformatics JNU,Jaipur
  2. 2.  Vibrio cholerae is a usual inhabitant of the marine environment causes severe diarrheal disease contaminating thousands of people each year in developing countries. Cholera is still a threat to a large number of people in the universe.
  3. 3.  Gram-negative Highly motile; polar flagellum Brackish rivers, coastal waters Associate with plankton and algae Proliferate in summers Cholera toxin Pathogenic and nonpathogenic strains 206 serogroups
  4. 4.  Grows in salt and fresh water Can survive and multiply in brackish water by infecting copepods Has over 150 identified serotypes based on O-antigen Only O1 and O139 are toxigenic and cause Cholera disease 2 categories of O1 serotypes – Classical and El Tor
  5. 5.  A life-threatening secretory diarrhea induced by enterotoxin secreted by V. cholerae food contaminated by copepods infected by V. cholerae An enterotoxic enteropathy (a non- invasive diarrheal disease) A major epidemic disease
  6. 6.  Occur 2-3 days after consumption of contaminated food/water Usually mild, or no symptoms at all  75% asymptomatic  20% mild disease  2-5% severe Vomiting Cramps Watery diarrhea (1L/hour) Without treatment, death in 18 hours- several days
  7. 7.  One hundred water samples were collected from four stations of Ahvaz Karun River. After DNA extraction, a polymeras chian reaction (PCR) assay was performed for detection of ctxA and tcpA (both Classical and ElTor variants) and OmpW was in the strain that was recognized as V. cholerae non - O139 and non - O1
  8. 8.  The virulence of Vibrio spp. is regulated by the ctxAB and tcpA genes. These genes are supposed to be exclusively associated with clinical strains of O1 and O139 serogroups
  9. 9.  Among 100 environmental samples of fresh water in this study, 27 isolate confirmed as V. cholerae spp. by PCR assay with ompW gene. 4 isolate that were confirmed V. cholerae non O1- non O139 had gene for toxin coregulated pilli.
  10. 10. 2 main serogroups carry set of virulence genes necessary for pathogenesis O1 Classical: 1 case per 30-100 infections El Tor: 1 case per 2-4 infections O139 Contained in India, Bangladesh
  11. 11.  V. cholerae is one of the major causes of morbidity and mortality in the developing countries. The studies that were performed on V. cholera nonO1, nonO139 strains that usually do not carry the ctx genes coding for cholera toxin (CT) or toxin-co regulated pilus which are the most important virulence characteristics of the cholera causing strains.
  12. 12. Pathogenic strains ofV. cholerae containstwo essential geneticelements, CTX element tcp geneand the vibriopathogenicity island(VPI) and toxin co-regulated pilus (TCP),respectively (Mishra et ctx geneal., 2011)
  13. 13.  Itis believed that most of the environmental strains do not produce cholera toxin The knack of pathogenic Vibrio spp. to cause disease depends on the expression of virulence factors like a potent enterotoxin (CT), a pilus colonization factor toxin co-regulated pilus; TCP).
  14. 14.  Cholera toxin (CT), which is responsible for the life threatening diarrheal disease cholera gravis caused by epidemic cholera (Blackstone et al., 2007). All Vibrio strains that are able of causing cholera continuously carry genes for TCP The nucleotide sequencing of OmpW gene in V. cholerae strains has unchanged among different V. cholerae strains that has made it a highly proper genetic marker for the organism (Nandy et al., 2000).
  15. 15. Gene Primer Oligonucleotide Amplicon size1.CtxA *F 5-CTCAGACGGGATTTGTTAGGCACG-3 301-bp References –(Shirai et al.

  16. 16.  Inthis investigation, we have studied the probability of the presence of genes that cods tcpA and ctxAB in V. cholerae non O1 and non O139.
  17. 17.  Boil or treat water with chlorine or iodine Cook everything Wash hands frequently
