Closer Look at Immune Proteins Provides Insight into Potential Pathogen Protection Strategies

Shown is a structure of the first three subunits of an inflammasome, which consists of the NAIP5 and NLRC4 immune proteins, captured using cryo-electron microscopy. The NAIP5 subunit of the inflammasome is bound to flagellin (shown in light purple), a protein that is part of the flagellum some bacteria use to move around.

Progress toward Plugging an Antibiotic Pump

News

Each year in the U.S., at least 23,000 people die from infections caused by antibiotic resistant bacteria. Using computer modeling, researchers are developing the means to prevent some of those deaths. One way bacteria develop resistance is by producing pumps that spit out antibiotics, before they can do any damage. The researchers teased out the details of how one antibiotic pump works.
