Collaboration between MIMS & FIMM: RNA Atlas of Human Bacterial Pathogens Uncovers Stress Dynamics Linked to Infection

Researchers at MIMS, Umeå, and FIMM, Helsinki, have investigated the transcriptome of 32 diverse bacterial pathogens under 11 host related stress conditions. The research revealed that diverse bacterial pathogens have common responses to similar stresses to a certain extent but mostly employ their unique repertoire with intersections between…

Antibiotics bind to and corrupt the functioning of crucial elements of bacterial cells, such as the ribosome that synthesises proteins or RNA polymerase that reads genes to generate mRNA. To counter the action of antibiotics, bacteria have evolved numerous dedicated mechanisms of resistance. Commonly, these resistance mechanisms act by either destroying the antibiotic, pumping it out of the cell or permanently modifying the molecular target so it becomes immune to the antibiotic, e.g. by post-translational modification such as methylation.
