Title - 'Shigella virulence - a circular argument...'

Abstract - The human adapted bacterial pathogen evolved from commensal Escherichia coli following the acquisition of a large virulence plasmid. Virulence factors encoded on the plasmid are regulated by chromosomal factors that respond to specific environmental cues. Furthermore, the maintenance of the plasmid in bacterial populations is influenced by environmental signals, and dependent on the interaction between the plasmid and bacterial host. This has potential implications for the evolution of virulence and the development of vaccines.

This seminar will be hosted in Blackboard, please contact iicd@sheffield.ac.uk if you would like to attend.
