Group B streptococcus (GBS) remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality among newborn children. The bacterium is a commensal organism colonizing the rectum and the gastrointestinal and urogenital tracts of adults, but it can be transmitted to neonates by an ascending infection of the maternal genital tract or during parturition. We previously reported that a transposon insertion disrupting rpoE resulted in the decreased survival of the mutant in the neonatal rat sepsis model of GBS… CONTINUE READING
