  1. 1. Multiple functions of YopN in the Yersinia pseudotuberculosis type III secretion system : from regulation to in vivo infection

    Author : Sarp Bamyaci; Åke Forsberg; Edouard Galyov; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Type III secretion system; Yersinia; YopN; virulence; phagocytosis; mouse infection; secretion kinetics;

    Abstract : The type 3 secretion systems (T3SSs) are virulence mechanisms used by various Gram-negative bacteria to overcome the host immunity. They are often target-cell contact induced and activated. Activation results in targeting of virulence effector substrates into host cells. READ MORE

  2. 2. Persistent infection by Yersinia pseudotuberculosis

    Abstract : Enteropathogenic Yersinia species can infect many mammalian organs such as the small intestine, cecum, Peyer’s patches, liver, spleen, and lung and cause diseases that resemble a typhoid-like syndrome, as seen for other enteropathogens. We found that sublethal infection doses of Y. READ MORE
