Listeria monocytogenes, the etiologic agent of listeriosis, remains a serious public health concern with its frequent occurrence in food coupled with a high mortality rate. The capacity of a bacterium to secrete proteins to or beyond the bacterial cell surface is of crucial importance in the understanding of biofilm formation and bacterial pathogenesis to further develop defensive strategies. Recent findings in protein secretion in Listeria together with the availability of complete genome… CONTINUE READING
