Modified virulence of antibiotic-induced Burkholderia pseudomallei filaments.

Abstract

Melioidosis is a life-threatening bacterial infection caused by Burkholderia pseudomallei. Some antibiotics used to treat melioidosis can induce filamentation in B. pseudomallei. Despite studies on the mechanism of virulence of the bacteria, the properties of B. pseudomallei filaments and their impact on virulence have not been investigated before. To… (More)
