Newly found sensing system enables certain bacteria to resist human immune defenses

...aps must be present for the system to function and effectively protect bacteria from AMPs. “We are aware that for gram-negative bacteria, PhoP/PhoQ has been called a premier target for antimicrobial drug discovery, but little corresponding work has been done with gram-positive bacteria,” Dr. Otto says. “Our g...

U-M researchers discover gene switched off in cancer can be turned on

...pular new drugs such as Herceptin and Gleevec more effectively treat cancer by targeting genetic mutations that express themselves in large amounts, causing cancer to develop.
