Modulation of endosomes for pathogen invasion (2009–2011)

Abstract:
Infectious pathogens invade cells by hijacking cellular pathways, termed endocytosis, that normally internalise material from outside the cell. We will identify the molecular details of these pathways and how they are modulated in response to infection with Salmonella, a leading cause of human gastroenteritis. Such studies are necessary in order to understand host-pathogen interactions so that treatments can be developed targeting the symptoms of infection
