Researchers have discovered that a leaderless intercellular peptide signal may contribute to group A Streptococcus virulence; providing a framework for the identification in other microorganisms that may potentially serve as therapeutic targets.
Novel research suggests that type III interferon-mediated signalling could play a major role in controlling live-attenuated yellow fever virus infection in mice.
Researchers have demonstrated that individual E. coli cells can sense the mechanical environment via voltage-induced calcium fluxes, a mechanism similar to that seen in vertebrate’s sensory neurons.
