Abstract:

The establishment of a phylogenetic tree is a prerequisite for studying the evolution of virulence. The current nomenclature of the genus is based on this phylogenetic tree and distinguishes only two species: and . If acquisition of SPI-1 introduced a virulence factor required for the pathogenesis of diarrheal disease, then mutational inactivation of this determinant should attenuate serotypes in animal models of gastroenteritis. The contribution of the invasion-associated type III secretion system to serotype Typhimurium pathogenesis in this animal model has recently been investigated using strains carrying mutations in and . The majority of antibodies elicited by immunization with heat-killed serotype Typhimurium or with a live-attenuated serotype Typhimurium vaccine is directed against the immunodominant O-antigen. Mathematical models predict that in this between-serotype competition, the serotype with higher transmissibility will dominate and eventually eliminate its competitor. The generation of O-antigen polymorphism through horizontal gene transfer was therefore a likely mechanism that allowed serotypes to adapt to the enhanced immune memory encountered in warm-blooded hosts. The gene is present in biphasic subspecies but absent from monophasic subspecies and , suggesting its acquisition by horizontal gene transfer. A primary pathogen can be defined as an organism capable of entering a host and finding a unique niche to multiply and avoid or subvert the host defenses, the outcome of which may be clinical disease manifestations.
