Study of O-acetyltransferase B (oacB) and three novel orfs encoded by Sf101 bacteriophage of Shigella flexneri

Rajput, Munazza

Description

Shigella flexneri is the leading cause of bacillary dysentery in developing countries and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Bacteriophages are known to play important role in the pathogenesis of S. flexneri by encoding O-antigen-modifying genes involved in serotype conversion. Bacteriophage Sf101 encoded O-acetyltransferase B (oacB) is a serotype converting gene that adds an acetyl group at either 3/4 position of Rhamnose III of the O-antigen. In some serotype 1c strains...[Show more]
