      Therapies that are safe, effective, and not vulnerable to developing resistance are highly desirable to counteract bacterial infections. Host-directed therapeutics is an antimicrobial approach alternative to conventional ...
    • Identification of lptA, lpxE, and lpxO, three genes involved in the remodeling of Brucella cell envelope 

      Conde Álvarez, Raquel; Palacios Chaves, Leyre; Gil Ramírez, Yolanda Upna; Salvador Bescós, Miriam; Bárcena Varela, Marina; Aragón Aranda, Beatriz; Martínez Gómez, Estrella; Zúñiga Ripa, Amaia; Miguel López, María Jesús de; Bartholomew, Toby Leigh; Hanniffy, Sean; Grilló Dolset, María Jesús; Vences Guzmán, Miguel Ángel; Bengoechea Alonso, José Antonio; Arce Gorvel, Vilma; Gorvel, Jean-Pierre; Moriyón Uría, Ignacio; Iriarte, Maite (Frontiers Media, 2018)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      The brucellae are facultative intracellular bacteria that cause a worldwide extended zoonosis. One of the pathogenicity mechanisms of these bacteria is their ability to avoid rapid recognition by innate immunity because ...
    • Klebsiella pneumoniae outer membrane protein A is required to prevent the activation of airway epithelial cells 

      March, Catalina; Moranta, David; Regueiro, Verónica; Llobet, Enrique; Tomás, Anna; Garmendia García, Juncal; Bengoechea Alonso, José Antonio (American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 2011)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Outer membrane protein A (OmpA) is a class of proteins highly conserved among the Enterobacteriaceae family and throughout evolution. Klebsiella pneumoniae is a capsulated Gram-negative pathogen. It is an important cause ...
    • The lipopolysaccharide core of Brucella abortus acts as a shield against innate immunity recognition 

      Conde Álvarez, Raquel; Bargen, Kristine von; Grilló Dolset, María Jesús; Jerala, Roman; Brandenburg, Klaus; Llobet, Enrique; Bengoechea Alonso, José Antonio; Moreno, Edgardo; Moriyón Uría, Ignacio; Gorvel, Jean-Pierre; Arce Gorvel, Vilma; Iriarte, Maite; Mancek Keber, Mateja; Barquero-Calvo, Elías; Palacios Chaves, Leyre; Chacón Díaz, Carlos; Chaves Olarte, Esteban; Martirosyan, Anna (Public Library of Science, 2012)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Innate immunity recognizes bacterial molecules bearing pathogen-associated molecular patterns to launch inflammatory responses leading to the activation of adaptive immunity. However, the lipopolysaccharide (LPS) of the ...
    • Nontypable haemophilus influenzae displays a prevalent surface structure molecular pattern in clinical isolates 

      Martí Lliteras, Pau; López Gómez, Antonio Upna; Mauro, Silvia; Hood, Derek W.; Viadas Martínez, Cristina Upna; Calatayud, Laura; Morey Sancho, Pau; Servin, Alain; Liñares, Josefina; Oliver, Antonio; Bengoechea Alonso, José Antonio; Garmendia, Junkal (Public Library of Science, 2011)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
