The role of bacterial pore-forming proteins in modulation of host cell function
Please note that the job is no longer active!
Supervisors: Professor Tim Mitchell and Professor Ian Henderson
Many bacterial pathogens produce pore-forming toxins that damage cell membranes by the formation of large pores. At lower concentrations these toxins can modulate host cell function without causing direct damage to the cell membrane. There are several proposed mechanisms by which these sub-lytic effects may be mediated, including modulation of lipid raft formation, interaction with the cell cytoskeleton, activation of host cell p...
