Contribution of protein isoaspartate methyl transferase (PIMT) in the survival of Salmonella Typhimurium under oxidative stress and virulence.


The enteric pathogen Salmonella Typhimurium (ST) survives inside the oxidative environment of phagocytic cells. Phagocyte generated oxidants primarily target proteins and modify amino acids in them. These modifications render the targeted proteins functionally inactive. Conversion of Asp to iso-Asp is one of the several known oxidant mediated amino acids… (More)
