Group A Streptococcus pyogenes (GAS) is a human pathogen that causes local suppurative infections and severe invasive diseases. Systemic dissemination of GAS is initiated by bacterial penetration of the epithelial barrier of the pharynx or damaged skin. To gain insight into the mechanism by which GAS penetrates the epithelial barrier, we sought to identify both bacterial and host factors involved in the process. Screening of a transposon mutant library of a clinical GAS isolate recovered from… CONTINUE READING
