How Listeria invades human and animal cells

A study by Professor Juan José Quereda Torres, in collaboration with researchers from the Pasteur Institute of Paris published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases, reveals the mechanism of Listeria invasion of human cells. The researchers inactivated the expression of the 165 most essential genes of the host mammal for the infection by Listeria monocytogenes, and have identified for the first time the factors of the host that modulate the rupture of the vacuole and the cytoplasmic access to epithelial cells. Professor Torres research could make it possible to develop new therapies to treat listeriosis in humans and animals in the future. @
