    Following maternal transmission, group B strep mutates to siken infants

    Group B streptococcus, a mostly benign inhabitant of healthy adults, is one of the leading causes of neonatal sepsis and meningitis. Researchers from the Institut Pasteur and Inserm have now shown that these pediatric cases might occur when the bacteria mutates within the infant following transmission from the mother.

    The ISG15 protein plays a key role in fighting bacterial infections

    Researchers from the Institut Pasteur, Inserm, INRA and the University of Freiburg have uncovered the key role played by the protein ISG15 in the fight against bacterial infections. During listeria infection, this protein promotes the release of cytokines which help the body eliminate the bacteria.

    The molecular crossbow: a vital weapon in the bacterial arsenal

    Scientists have made a major breakthrough in understanding the molecular structure and workings of an important part of the arsenal employed by bacteria to destroy cells or other bacteria. This study focuses on the assembly mechanism and gives a detailed description of the architecture of a key component in the bacterial type VI secretion system

    A microbial virus from extreme environment opens doors to new therapeutical strategies

    Following their research on virus SIRV2, a virus found to survive in extreme environments (very hot and acidic), researchers from the University of Washington, the University of Virginia and the Institut Pasteur have discovered what appears to be a basic mechanism of resistance to heat, dehydratation and ultraviolet radiation. This finding could potentially lead to many applications, including the development of new ways to package DNA for gene therapy.

    Dogma challenged: the genetic determination of testis or ovary is conserved through evolution

    In animals, sexual reproduction is almost universal but the mechanisms that determine the choice between forming a testis or ovary are highly diverse. Researchers from the Institut Pasteur and the University of Minnesota have recently proven that the genetic determination of testis or ovary has been conserved through evolution, thanks to a study of the gene DMRT1.

    From monkeys to humans: the importance of interspecies transmission in the emergence of retroviruses in Central Africa

    Most of the viral pathogenic agents that have emerged in humans in recent decades are of animal origin. Hence, researchers from the Institut Pasteur have recently proved, for the first time scientifically at the epidemiological level, that specific contact with a monkey is a risk factor for the transmission of a pathogenic retrovirus (STLV-1/HTLV-1) to humans
