Host–Microbe Interactions: Wallowing in Mucus Mire

Ryan C. Hunter

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Mucin glycoproteins confer robust protection against infection by regulating bacterial behavior and virulence gene expression, but the mechanistic bases are poorly understood. New work implicates glycan-based signaling through a carbohydrate-binding sensor kinase in mediating pathogen behavior at the mucosal interface.
