Metabolic pathways of Pseudomonas aeruginosa involved in competition with respiratory bacterial pathogens

Abstract

BACKGROUND Chronic airway infection by Pseudomonas aeruginosa considerably contributes to lung tissue destruction and impairment of pulmonary function in cystic-fibrosis (CF) patients. Complex interplays between P. aeruginosa and other co-colonizing pathogens including Staphylococcus aureus, Burkholderia sp., and Klebsiella pneumoniae may be crucial for… (More)
