Elizabethkingia meningoseptica: an important emerging pathogen causing healthcare-associated infections.
Elizabethkingia meningoseptica has been deemed a potentially important threat to patients in critical care areas because of its multidrug-resistant phenotype and its ability to adapt to various environments. This review considers the incidence, facto

Waterborne Elizabethkingia meningoseptica in Adult Critical Care.
Elizabethkingia meningoseptica is an infrequent colonizer of the respiratory tract; its pathogenicity is uncertain. In the context of a 22-month outbreak of E. meningoseptica acquisition affecting 30 patients in a London, UK, critical care unit (3% a

Elizabethkingia Meningoseptica Engodenous Endophthalmitis - a case report.
Elizabethkingia meningoseptica is a nosocomial non-fermenting gram-negative bacillus that has an increasing prevalence in health care settings, especially in intensive care environments. While it has long been recognized as a rare but serious cause o

Genomic epidemiology and global diversity of the emerging bacterial pathogen Elizabethkingia anophelis.
Elizabethkingia anophelis is an emerging pathogen involved in human infections and outbreaks in distinct world regions. We investigated the phylogenetic relationships and pathogenesis-associated genomic features of two neonatal meningitis isolates is

Identification and characterization of a novel prokaryotic peptide: N-glycosidase from Elizabethkingia meningoseptica.
Peptide:N-glycosidase (PNGase) F, the first PNGase identified in prokaryotic cells, catalyzes the removal of intact asparagine-linked oligosaccharide chains from glycoproteins and/or glycopeptides. Since its discovery in 1984, PNGase F has remained a

Complete Genome Sequence of Elizabethkingia meningoseptica, Isolated from a T-Cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Patient.
An Elizabethkingia meningoseptica infection was detected at the end stage of a patient with T-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The complete genome of this isolated strain, FMS-007, was generated in one contig with a total size of 3,938,967 bp. A prelimin

Elizabethkingia Meningoseptica in a Case of Biliary Tract Infection Following Liver Transplantation.
BACKGROUND Elizabethkingia meningoseptica (E. meningoseptica) is an aerobic Gram-negative bacillus known to thrive in moist environments, and is now recognized as a hospital-acquired infection, being found to contaminate hospital equipment, respirato
