Microbial peptidyl-prolyl cis/trans isomerases (ppIases): virulence factors and potential alternative drug targets
(Amer Soc Microbiology, 2014)
Initially discovered in the context of immunomodulation, peptidyl-prolyl cis/trans isomerases (PPIases) were soon identified as enzymes catalyzing the rate-limiting protein folding step at peptidyl bonds preceding proline ...
Polyketide synthase (PKS) reduces fusion of Legionella pneumophila-containing vacuoles with lysosomes and contributes to bacterial competitiveness during infection
(Elsevier Gmbh, Urban & Fischer Verlag, 2014)
L. pneumophila-containing vacuoles (LCVs) exclude endocytic and lysosomal markers in human macrophages and protozoa. We screened a L. pneumophila mini-Tn10 transposon library for mutants, which fail to inhibit the fusion ...
Peptidylprolyl cis-trans isomerases of Legionella pneumophila: virulence, moonlighting and novel therapeutic targets
(Portland Press Ltd, 2014)
Legionella pneumophila, typically a parasite of free-living protozoa, can also replicate in human alveolar macrophages and lung epithelial cells causing Legionnaires' disease in humans, a severe atypical pneumonia. The ...
