Identification of a novel virulence regulatory mechanism in S. aureus

Our lab’s most recent work, entitled “Stress-induced inactivation of the Staphylococcus aureus purine biosynthesis repressor leads to hypervirulence” was published in Nature Communications. Mariya Goncheva et al. teamed up to investigate the effect of mutations in the purine biosynthesis repressor on the pathogenic potential of S. aureus.
