    When Listeria attacks the intestinal microbiota

    Although several Listeria strains can cause listeriosis, some are particularly virulent. This is because they secrete a toxin that damages the intestinal microbiota, preventing it from serving as a barrier and promoting infection.

    HIV: Identification of key immune response receptors in patients spontaneously controlling infection

    A small number of patients infected by HIV spontaneously control viral replication without antiretroviral therapy, and do not develop the disease. The ability of these rare patients, known as "HIV controllers", to suppress HIV replication appears to be down to a highly effective immune response. Scientists observed that CD4+ T immune cells in these patients were capable of recognizing tiny quantities of the virus.

    Meningococcal disease: identification of a sexually transmitted variant

    A study from the University of Würzburg (Germany) and the Institut Pasteur (France) elucidates the mechanisms of the emergence of an outbreak of meningococcal disease in men who have sex with men (MSM). These results are published in the open access journal PLOS ONE.

    Key cellular factors for chikungunya virus replication identified

    Scientists from the Institut Pasteur, Inserm and the Max Planck Institute have used high-throughput screening to identify the cellular factors involved in the replication of chikungunya virus in human cells. These findings have revealed potential therapeutic targets that could help tackle this virus.

    Discovery of the mechanism used to coordinate replication of the two Vibrio cholerae chromosomes

    Bacterial genomes generally contain a single chromosome and one or more extrachromosal elements such as plasmids. The initiation of bacterial chromosome replication must be carefully checked to ensure that chromosome duplication occurs only once per cell cycle. The bacterial pathogen responsible for cholera epidemics, Vibrio cholerae, is distinctive in that it has two chromosomes. The researchers have revealed an original, energy-saving mechanism known as the "replication checkpoint" that coordinates replication of the two chromosomes with the V. cholerae cell cycle.

    How could Zika enter Europe?

    Researchers at the Institut Pasteur have assessed the transmission potential of four populations of Aedes mosquitoes in circulation on the island of Madeira and southern France with a view to examining various possible scenarios for the introduction of Zika virus to Europe. Their work suggests that the Aedes aegypti mosquito present in Madeira is more likely to promote local transmission of Zika virus than Aedes albopictus. Consequently, it appears that the risk of a Zika epidemic in continental Europe is still low.

    Malaria: a new route of access to the heart of the parasite

    Scientists have just identified an Achilles heel in the parasite that causes malaria, by showing that its optimum development is dependent on its ability to expropriate RNA molecules in infected cells – a host-pathogen interaction that had never previously been observed.
