Longitudinal analysis of group A Streptococcus emm types and emm clusters in a high prevalence setting reveals past infection does not prevent future infection

The Journal of Infectious Diseases

Patricia Therese CampbellAndrew Steer

Abstract

Group A Streptococcus (GAS) is a pathogen of global importance, but despite the ubiquity of GAS infections, there remains incomplete understanding of the relationship between infection, colonization and immunity. The M protein, encoded by the emm gene, is a major virulence factor and va...read more

This feed focuses on Streptococcal Genes, such as virulence factors in Streptococcus gram-positive bacteria. Discover the latest research on Streptococcal genes.

Virulence Factors

Virulence factors are molecules that are produced by organisms including bacteria, viruses, and fungi. They assist the organism in colonization, dissemination, and enhance the ability to survive in harsh environments and evade the host immune system. Discover the latest research on virulence factors here.

Streptococcal Infection

Streptococcal infections are caused by streptococci, a genus of Gram-positive bacteria which cause diverse human diseases. Discover the latest research on streptococcal infection here.
