The CNF1 toxin is produced by some uropathogenic (UPECs) andmeningitis-causing Escherichia coli strains. It belongs to a large family of bacterial virulence factors and toxins modifying cellular regulators of the actin cytoskeleton, namely the Rho GTPases. CNF1 autonomously enters the host cell cytosol, where it catalyzes the constitutive activation of Rho(More)

The post-mitotic status of photoreceptor cells make them unsuitable targets for existing retroviral vectors. One of the strategies that we have been exploiting is adenoviral (AV) mediated(More)
