A small-molecule inhibitor of the bacterial type III secretion system protects against in vivo infection with Citrobacter rodentium
The type III secretion system (T3SS) is highly conserved in many Gram-negative pathogenic bacteria and functions as an injector of bacterial proteins (effectors) into host cells. T3SSs are involvedExpand
