Abstract

New virulence factors associated with the genus Shigella have been described recently. These comprise enterotoxins ShET-1 and ShET-2, encoded by the set and sen genes, respectively, and the secreted autotransporter toxin Sat, encoded by the sat gene. The present study aimed to determine...read more

Shigellosis

Shigellosis is an infection of the intestines caused by Shigella bacteria. Signs and symptoms may range from mild abdominal discomfort to full-blown dysentery characterized by cramps, diarrhea, with slimy-consistent stools, fever, blood, pus, or mucus in stools or tenesmus. Discover the latest research on shigellosis here.

Histone Methyltransferases

Histone methyltransferases, as chromatin modifiers, regulate the transcriptomic landscape in normal development as well in diseases such as cancer. Here is the latest research.

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.
