The ability of a pathogen to evade neutrophil phagocytic killing mechanisms is critically important for dissemination and establishment of a systemic infection. Understanding how pathogens overcome these innate defenses is essential for the development of optimal therapeutic strategies for invasive infections. CpsY is a conserved transcriptional regulator previously identified as an important virulence determinant for systemic infection of Streptococcus iniae. While orthologs of CpsY have been… CONTINUE READING
