Extracellular Bacterial Pathogen Induces Host Cell Surface Reorganization to Resist Shear Stress

Bacterial infections targeting the bloodstream lead to a wide array of devastating diseases such as septic shock and meningitis. To study this crucial type of infection, its specific environment needs to be taken into account, in particular the mechanical forces generated by the blood flow. In a previous study using Neisseria meningitidis as a model, we… CONTINUE READING
