Ex vivo Model of Human Aortic Valve Bacterial Colonization
The interaction of pathogens with host tissues is a key step towards successful colonization and establishment of an infection. During bacteremia, pathogens can virtually reach all organs in the human body (e.g., heart, kidney, spleen) but ...
Lectin Binding Analysis of Streptococcus mutans Glycoproteins
Authors:  Alejandro Avilés-Reyes, José A. Lemos and Jacqueline Abranches, date: 04/05/2015, view: 2802, Q&A: 0
Bacterial glycoproteins are of increasing interest due to their abundance in nature and importance in health and infectious diseases. However, only a very small fraction of bacterial glycoproteins have been characterized and its post-translational ...
