CPAF in Chlamydia infections

CPAF in Chlamydia infection

This exciting study is a sorely needed advance that will be of significant interest to those who follow the field of Chlamydia pathogenesis. Although the data primarily refute prior reported roles of CPAF, the rationale is clear in the context of prior work. There are also new activities attributed to CPAF, and the reduced infectivity of the CPAF mutants is a new finding. The genetic approach used here will become the gold standard for the field.
