Molecular studies of three novel bacteriophages of shigella flexneri
Temperate bacteriophages play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of Shigella flexneri. They modify the O-antigen of the host, leading to increased virulence and immune evasion. Characterization of S. flexneri phages is therefore essential for understanding the antigenicity and pathogenicity of S. flexneri. In this study, three novel bacteriophages of S. flexneri were isolated and characterized. The first was a serotype converting bacteriophage SfIV isolated from a serotype 4av strain of S....[Show more]
