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
The dynamics and infrastructure of research at the Institut Pasteur are geared towards providing research teams with the resources required for the realization of ambitious, innovative projects. Institut Pasteur's laboratories are composed of 130 research units and 14 technology platforms.
L’Institut Pasteur a entamé une transformation ambitieuse de l’organisation de sa recherche sous le signe de la transversalité, de l’interdisciplinarité et de la mutualisation des ressources. La création de centres de recherche transversaux est l’un des pivots de cette nouvelle organisation.
National Reference Centers (CNRs) and World Health Organization Collaborating Centers (WHOCCs)
