A game changer in biomass degradation and bacterial pathogenesis

Pathogenic bacteria use different strategies to overcome the host immune responses. To this end, an enzyme discovered by NMBU researchers ten years, which revolutionised the field of biomass degradation, has been shown to be important in multi-drug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa pathogenesis.

New findings on how pathogenic baceria protect against our immune system

Enzymes previously known for their ability to break down biomass are also important for how bacteria defend themselves against our immune system, NMBU researchers show in a new study published in Nature Communications.
