Infections have long been thought to exert natural selection on humans. Infectious disease resistance is frequently invoked as a mechanism shaping human genetic diversity, but such hypotheses have rarely been quantitatively evaluated with direct measures of disease-related mortality. Enhancement of genetically determined resistance to tuberculosis by natural selection has been Cited by: Salmonellosis is a frequent disease in poultry stocks, caused by several serotypes of the bacterial species Salmonella enterica and sometimes transmitted to humans through the consumption of contaminated meat or eggs. Symptom-free carriers of the bacteria contribute greatly to the propagation of the disease in poultry stocks. So far, several candidate genes and quantitative trait loci (QTL Cited by:

Interactions amongst genes, known as epistasis, are assumed to make a substantial contribution to the genetic variation in infectious disease susceptibility, but this claim is controversial.

Genetic Control of Natural Resistance to Infection and Malignancy is a collection of papers presented at the Proceedings of an International Symposium of the Canadian Society for Immunology held in Montreal, Quebec. It provides information about the different models of genetic resistance to various diseases.

Miscellaneous: Genetic control of natural resistance to infection and malignancy. pp ref.9 Abstract: The genetic control of resistance to Rickettsia tsutsugamushi infection was analysed based on the responses to infection of the F 1 s, F 2 s and backcrosses from matings of BALB/c (resistant) and C3H/He (susceptible) mice mice Cited by: 7.

Tuberculosis remains an important bacterial disease responsible for more than one million deaths per year. The risk of overt disease is highest in the first year post infection, nevertheless, asymptomatic chronic infection (referred to as Latent Tuberculosis Infection, LTBI) may also be established.

LTBI cannot be ascertained directly, it can only be inferred from a skin or blood test of. Natural resistance to infection with several intracellular pathogens - both bacterial and protozoal - has recently been demonstrated to be under genetic control.

The most important genetic factor related to natural resistance to HIV-1 infection is the presence of the ∆32 mutation in the CCR5 gene.

This mutation occurs in approximately 10% of Caucasian individuals and represents a deletion of 32 bp resulting in the synthesis of a truncated protein with only 4 of the 7 transmembrane domains required for protein expression at the cell surface [ 10 ].Cited by: Natural resistance is now coming to be recognized as a potentially important phenomenon in host defense against infection and ma­ lignancy.

Genetically controlled resistance mechanisms are usUally effective early in infection and before conventional immune responses are generated.
