application of dot blot

Dot blot results were compared with MLSA to assess the discriminatory ability of the obtained hybridization patterns Figures 1 , 2 , Table 1. The markers used to assess antibiotic resistance showed a greater variation amongst isolates. In this work, a dot blot platform coupled with automatic data analysis was used to study S. Persistent infections of cows 5, 8, 9, 10, 12, 13, and 14 with isolates from Group II, suggests the ability of this lineage of S. Genes ddl, gki , and tdk were selected as the most informative for MLSA genotyping. The presence of the nisin U operon was addressed using probes NU1 and NU3, which targeted the regulation gene nsuR and the nisin immunity gene nsuI , respectively. Bovine mastitis can be classified as subclinical mastitis asymptomatic or clinical mastitis symptomatic. A total of 54 S. Table 3. The first fully sequenced genome of S. Using this threshold, the results confirmed the identity of all isolates as S. In this work, two dairy herds located in Northern Portugal Barcelos and Maia were selected due to previous reported persistent S. Infected cows were considered persistently infected when S. To overcome operator-dependent analysis of the dot blots and increase the technique's consistency and reliability, the hybridization signals were converted into probability values, with average probabilities higher than 0. Indeed, resistance of S. Bovine mastitis is a disease characterized by mammary gland inflammation that affects dairy herds worldwide. Probability values higher than 0. DNA extraction from pure cultures was carried out using the E. Table 1. Probe R2 linB gene, pirlimycin resistance and probe R3 tetS gene, tetracycline resistance both hybridized with a total of 32 isolates, with isolates SU and SU83 only providing positive results with the R2 probe, and isolates SU90 and SU with the R3 probe. Streptococcus uberis isolates used in this work. Dot blots using 15 probes and genomic DNA from 44 S. Although fingerprinting techniques, such as Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis Lundberg et al. Figure 2. Mastitis leads to a decline in milk production and quality, which coupled with high treatment costs or early culling of animals, is responsible for significant losses in dairy farms Petrovski et al. These drawbacks call for the need to develop and optimize new procedures to support disease prevention caused by both contagious and environmental pathogens, given that the factors influencing their prevalence are not identical Barkema et al. The assessment of MLSA genotyping results allowed to compare the obtained gene sequences with those already publicly available Table S2. SCC varied considerably between individuals and within the same animal during the sampling timeframe Table 1. Furthermore, the enhanced growth in the teat environment has been associated with the presence of a plasminogen activator protein, required for the degradation of extracellular matrix proteins Rosey et al. The sequences were aligned using ClustalW and the number of unique sequences for each gene was determined. While traditionally acknowledged as an environmental pathogen, S. Overall, this work showed the utility of dot blot and MLSA to characterize population structure and epidemiological patterns of mastitis-causing S. Furthermore, antibiotic resistance in pathogens remains a great concern, making regular screenings of antibiotic resistance patterns an indispensable procedure Erskine et al. This can be problematic for farmers, since subclinical infections, which can go unnoticed without regular cow screenings, are associated with a higher somatic cell count in milk. These herds, located in Portugal Barcelos and Maia regions , had similar management practices, with the herd from Barcelos being smaller and having a better milking parlor management, since infected cow segregation was immediate. This operon is responsible for the production and immunity to a bacteriocin of the lantibiotic class, which has antimicrobial activity against many lactic acid bacteria Wirawan et al.

Streptococcus uberis is considered one of the most important pathogens associated with bovine mastitis. On the other hand, it appears that in Maia S.

Procedures recommended by the National Mastitis Council for milk collection were followed Oliver et al. Despite the fact that antibiotic treatment is still extensively employed application of dot blot the control of bovine mastitis, the use of the correct antibiotic and duration of treatment are essential to application of dot blot a successful therapy Hillerton and Kliem, ; Swinkels et al.

To determine if the same gene alleles have been previously identified, the sequences obtained for all the isolates in this work were compared with the Sequence Types STs available at the PubMLST database Table S2. Namely, the set of sequences corresponding to the Group II isolates, widely established in Maia, were already reported in Portugal insuggesting that this lineage is well-established in the country.

All isolates were obtained from cows with sub-clinical infection except for four cows 1, 14, 16, and 20which showed clinical infection signs. Concerning S.

The hypothesis of this lineage being highly contagious is supported by the fact that cows 18β€” 24, with no recorded mastitis in the previous visits, were newly infected by Group II isolates within the 6 month sampling timeframe. Since different control strategies are employed depending on the mode of transmission, in-depth studies of S. The clonal diversity of a subset of 40 S. This approach allowed to disclose prevalent virulence patterns and clonal lineages of S. To ensure high confidence, only probability values higher than 0. Interestingly, isolates clustered in Groups II had identical alleles to Portuguese strains isolated in The presence of these 15 genes in 44 S. The ability of this pathogen to survive in a wide range of substrates decreases the effectiveness of typical herd hygiene and disease prevention methods, since these are mostly aimed at controlling contagious pathogens. This high cell count results in decreased milk quality and economic value Halasa et al. Concerning SCC, cows 1 and 4 had higher values, nevertheless SCC values of cow 1 were continuously decreasing throughout the sampling timeframe, with the last obtained value below A total of 43 isolates were obtained from Maia, 33 of which representing persistent infections, from 20 cows. These results suggest that in Barcelos S. The two herds had similar management practices, with the herd from Barcelos having roughly half the number of cows and a better milking parlor management, since infected cows were immediately segregated. Visits to herds in the Barcelos and Maia regions, between December and May , allowed to obtain 54 S. Five out of the six virulence-related probes tested V1, V2, V3, V4, and V6 provided consistent positive results across all 44 tested isolates, showing that the genes hasC, gapC, oppF, sua , and pauA , respectively targeted by these markers, were present in all isolates. DNA samples were quantified using the Qubit 2. This analysis resulted in splitting S. The difficult control of S. Figure 1. Each time a new cow entered the milking herd, after parturition, the above mentioned procedure was initiated. The farms were followed from December to May In the first visit, all lactating milking cows were clinically evaluated by a veterinarian, namely for the presence of swollen and red quarters, and the California Mastitis Test CMT was carried out at quarter level. Two dairy herds with prevalent S. Hundred nanogram of DNA from each of the analyzed S. Maximum Likelihood tree based on the concatenated sequences of genes ddl , gki , and tdk of a total of S. The typical environmental reservoirs where S. Several bacterial species can cause the disease and typical bovine mastitis-causing pathogens include Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli , and members of the Streptococcus genus Streptococcus uberis, Streptococcus agalactiae , and Streptococcus dysgalactiae Bradley, Among these, Streptococcus uberis S. Among the total of 24 infected cows analyzed in this work, dry quarters were observable in four animals 3, 10, 16, and Ten S. These results further support that the different modes of transmission displayed by S. Although largely regarded as an environmental pathogen, characterized by different clonal lineages causing disease Lundberg et al. For genotyping, the sequence variation of genes arc, ddl, gki, recP, tdk, tpi , and yqiL Coffey et al. Composite milk samples from the four quarters were collected in the first visit to identify S. This analysis revealed that most of the gene sequences had corresponding ST alleles in the database. The dominant cluster Group II contained 28 S. Probe R1 provided positive results with only five isolates SU52, SU53, SU58, SU59, and SU45 , suggesting a restricted distribution of the ermB gene erythromycin resistance , identical to the one obtained for the nisin operon. New cases of mastitis were assigned to cows which entered the milking herd and were found infected by S. Results showed that this operon was present in a restricted number of isolates in the analyzed S. A Molecular Imager Chemi Doc system Bio Rad was used to acquire the dot blot images, which were quantified using a custom-made image analysis software Caridade et al. Even though the inflammatory symptoms are evident in the case of clinical mastitis, prompting producers, or veterinarians to take appropriate action, diagnosis of subclinical mastitis is mainly carried out by milk testing, e. Mastitis control programs are fundamentally based on three pillars: a prevention of new infections, b elimination of existing ones, and c monitoring udder health, with disease prevention taking a predominant role in recent years LeBlanc et al. Epidemiology studies are essential to study S. Efficient colonization and survival can also be attributed to the protein SUAM Streptococcus uberis adhesion molecule , which plays a role in adherence to the bovine mammary epithelial cells Almeida et al. Cows were considered subclinically infected if S. The cows infected with S. Using a dedicated image analysis software previously described Caridade et al. In recent years, many of the genes coding for these traits were identified, namely the nisin U operon. Seven different clusters were identified, with Barcelos showing a high clonal diversity and Maia a dominant lineage infecting most cows, suggesting distinct epidemiological patterns, with S. The top grid represents the position of the DNA from each S. In this work, we optimized and validated a dot blot platform, combined with automatic image analysis, to rapidly assess the population structure of infective S. For quarter level sampling, 20 mL of milk were collected, while for composite samples, 5 mL of milk from each quarter were collected. The ability of S. In Barcelos, it was possible to obtain 11 isolates from four different cows. These data allowed to confirm the isolates' identity as S.
