Researchers elucidate a fundamental physiological response required for Salmonella survival in the host

In a new paper published in mBio, researchers in the Department of Microbiology show that polyamines are critical for adaptation of salmonella to low magnesium conditions, including those found in the macrophage phagosome.

New role of small RNAs in Salmonella infections uncovered

Salmonella are food-borne pathogens that infect millions of people a year. To do so, these bacteria depend on a complex network of genes and gene products that allow them to sense environmental conditions. In a new paper, researchers have investigated the role of small RNAs that help Salmonella...
