Phosphoglycerate kinase inhibits epithelial cell invasion by group B streptococci.

Abstract

Group B streptococci (GBS) are opportunistic human pathogens that cause infection and invasive disease in newborns, pregnant women and non-pregnant adults. The internalization of GBS into eukaryotic cells occurs in an actin-microfilament dependent process. The objective of our study was to understand what host cell and/or bacterial factors may be involved… (More)
