Detection of PCR and colony spots in situ hybridization for HPI irp1, irp2, irp3, irp4, irp5 gene (A-E, genetic test results of HPI irp1, irp2, irp3, irp4, irp5 in turn; F, colony spot hybridization for irp2 gene; M, DL 2000 Marker; 1, negative control; 2, positive strain; 3, experimental strain).
The homology of HPI major part gene sequences and phylogenetic trees (A-E, in sequence, the homology comparison of HPI irp1, irp2, irp3, irp4, and irp5 part gene sequence and corresponding phylogenetic trees).
Predication of protein secondary structure of HPI major structure genes (A-E, in sequence, prediction of protein secondary structure of irp1, irp2, irp3, irp4 and rp5 genes, respectively).
Prediction of protein tertiary structure of HPI major structure genes (A-E, in sequence, prediction of protein tertiary structure prediction of irp1, irp2, irp3, irp4 and irp5 genes).
The expression profile of HMWPs under iron starvation (M: Protein marker; 1, Positive strain; 2-10, The experimental strains. HMWPs bands, irp1-348kDa, irp2-229kDa, irp4-29kDa, irp5-57kDa; irp3 was the basic protein (pH 8.8) so did not detect protein bands).
Gross pathological signs of mice (A, control group; B, HPI+ infection group; C, HPI- infection group).
Histopathology observations of liver and kidney in mice (HE, 400×); A, liver of control group; B, liver of HPI+ -infection group; C, liver of HPI--infection group; D, kidney of control group; E, kidney of HPI+-infection group; F, kidney of HPI--infection group). Black arrow indicates red blood cells; yellow arrow indicates lymphocyte infiltrations.
Ultrastructural histopathology observations of liver and kidney in mice. Control group, HPI+-infection group, and HPI--infection group.
