Researchers have discovered that a relatively ancient drug efflux pump from Haemophilus influenzae exports the same antibiotics as its evolved counterpart from Escherichia coli, but was mitigated by a leaky porin channel.
Scientists investigating increased scarlet fever cases have identified that a new dominant linage of Strep A with increased toxin production has emerged.
Researchers have uncovered the mechanism used by predatory bacteria, Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus, to initiate prey invasion.
Researchers have developed an animal model mimicking HIV infection in infants, potentially allowing the development of therapeutics and interventions for the pediatric population.
In this interview we speak to Michael Bachman (University of Michigan MI, USA) about his research on the factors involved in Klebsiella colonization and infection, and whether these could be used to stratify high-risk patients in the future.
New research shows that hydrogen peroxide released by Streptococcus pneumoniae inhibits key components of the innate immune system. This contributes to the successful pathogen colonization of the host and causes pneumonia.
In a new sequencing study, researchers discovered a transcriptional signature in B cells associated with protection from SIV or HIV infection.
Research published this week suggests a specific fungus is present in Clostridium difficile infections, potentially presenting a future therapeutic target.
Researchers recently profiled the single-cell transcriptomes of thousands of individual parasites to provide the first high-resolution atlas of malaria parasite gene expression across the lifecycle.
