Pseudomonas to the assault of cell junctions


​​​Researchers at the Cancer Biology and Infection laboratory showed that bacterial virulence factors, usually studied independently, cooperate to increase virulence. These researchers have identified a novel mechanism of cooperation betw​​een the secretion system present in some pathogenic and protease released into the extracellular medium. New pharmacological inhibitors that block the protease could help to slow the spread.
