Lipoproteins of Gram-positive bacteria are involved in a broad range of functions such as substrate binding and transport, antibiotic resistance, cell signaling, or protein export and folding. Lipoproteins are also known to initiate both innate and adaptative immune responses. However, their role in the pathogenicity of intracellular microorganisms is yet… CONTINUE READING
