Bacterial Ortholog of Mammalian Translocator Protein (TSPO) with Virulence Regulating Activity


The translocator protein (TSPO), previously designated as peripheral-type benzodiazepine receptor, is a protein mainly located in the outer mitochondrial membrane of eukaryotic cells. TSPO is implicated in major physiological functions and functionally associated with other proteins such as the voltage-dependent anionic channel, also designated as… (More)
