Characterization of novel virulence factors of Shigella flexneri and development of Caenorhabditis elegans as an animal model for Shigella infection

George, Divya


The Gram-negative bacterium Shigella flexneri is the causative agent of Shigellosis, also known as bacillary dysentery, responsible for 5-15% of the global burden of diarrhoeal disease. Despite over 50 years of Shigellosis research, the search for a commercially viable vaccine is ongoing. A thorough understanding of bacterial pathogenesis is paramount for the development of an effective vaccine. To this end the aim of this thesis is to further our understanding of S. flexneri pathogenesis by...[Show more]
