Researchers Investigate Disease Mechanisms that Allow Bacteria to Adhere to Molecules on Host Cell Surfaces, Critical in Heart Infection
A recent study published in the journal Infection and Immunity demonstrates how a key protein is required to bind two distinct receptors on the bacteria Streptococcus oralis involved in infective endocarditis, an infection of the heart that commonly occurs on the surface of the valves. Samantha J. King, PhD, principal investigator in the Center for Microbial Pathogenesis in The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, is senior author of the research.
