Campylobacter jejuni is a major food-borne human pathogen that paradoxically is an oxygen-sensitive microaerophile, yet must resist the oxidative stresses encountered both in the host and in the environment. Recent studies suggest that, perhaps surprisingly, C. jejuni contains a wide range of enzymes involved in oxidative stress defense, and this review focuses on the properties and roles of these proteins. Although the mechanisms of gene regulation are still poorly understood in C. jejuni… CONTINUE READING
