Molecular Diagnostics for Gonorrhoea: Implications for.
WHO control strains for Neisseria gonorrhoeae antimicrobial susceptibility testing. Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) in N. gonorrhoeae is of significant international concern. Several high profile bodies (ECDC, CDC, WHO) have issued both global and regional action plans which aim to ensure that gonorrhoea remains a treatable infection.
N. gonorrhoeae F62 were stained with CFSE then the staining reaction was quenched with foetal bovine serum. Human cervical ME-180 cells were infected with CFSE-stained N. gonorrhoeae (multiplicity of the infection 100:1) for 2h. Infected cells were washed to remove loosely adhered bacteria. Flow cytometry was used to quantify the percentage of ME-180 cells associated with CFSE-stained N.
N. gonorrhoeae is a Gram-negative bacterium that causes sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and can affect both men and women. It can also be transmitted from mothers to children during childbirth 279. N. gonorrhoeae infection can significantly affect reproductive health and increases the risk of HIV transmission 279,280.The most common site of infection is the urogenital tract, but N.

Gonorrhoea is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria.
Immunity to N. gonorrhoeae is a topic that until recently has been hard to define, because there is currently no clearly established state of immunity to gonorrhea in humans, which are the only natural host for this infection. Furthermore, until recently, only one animal model of genital tract infection has been developed, known as the estradiol-treated female mouse model.
The fold of the N. gonorrhoeae enzyme is very similar to that of human isozyme II; 192 residues, 74 of which are identical in the two enzymes, have equivalent positions in the three-dimensional structures. This corresponds to 85% of the entire polypeptide chain of the bacterial enzyme. The only two cysteine residues in the bacterial enzyme, which has a periplasmic location in the cell, are.
