Protein-mediated warfare among pseudomonads

Protein-mediated warfare among pseudomonads

Recent knowledge on secreted and contact-dependent Pseudomonas peptides and proteins exhibiting antibacterial activity has expanded enormously, warranting a timely update of this aspect of sociomicrobiology for Pseudomonas aeruginosa and other Pseudomonas species.

Bitter-sweet symphony: glycan–lectin interactions in virus biology

Bitter-sweet symphony: glycan–lectin interactions in virus biology Glycans and lectins cover crucial roles in virus biology and their interplay often shapes the virus-host interaction. This review reflects on glycan-lectin interactions in the context of viral infection and anti-viral immunity, and explores potential targets for antiviral strategies.

New Editor Karine A Gibbs

Karine Gibbs

Karine Gibbs is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology at Harvard University. Her research group uses the bacterium Proteus mirabilis as a bacterial communication model system. She graduated with an A.B. in Biochemical Sciences from Harvard University and a Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology at Stanford University. As a graduate student, she studied the cell biology of pathogens and developed tools to follow the movements of proteins on the bacterial surface. She studied for her postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Washington where she began her investigations of the molecular mechanisms underlying self-recognition in bacteria.

Assembly of the bacterial type III secretion machinery

Assembly of the bacterial type III secretion machinery

This review discusses the assembly of the type III secretion injectisome, a cell envelope spanning macromolecular machine used by Gram-negative bacteria to translocate bacterial effector proteins into host cells.
