Bacterial adaptation contributes to pneumococcal threat in sickle cell disease patients
Date:5/23/2014

tically affected by changes in 60 different bacterial genes. The results demonstrated that bacteria faced different conditions in animals with and without sickle cell disease.

When researchers checked those same genes in bacteria isolated from sickle cell patients, they found six that were missing or altered in a significant percentage of samples. The list included genes involved in transporting iron into bacteria, bacterial metabolism and other processes that are likely altered in patients with sickle cell disease.

"We demonstrated that genes necessary to cause disease in the general public are expendable in patients with sickle cell disease," Rosch said.

The same methods used in this study could also be used to better understand the genetics behind other pneumococcal high-risk groups, including in individuals who are past retirement age or are obese.
