Identification of critical residues of the serotype modifying O-acetyltransferase of Shigella flexneri

Thanweer, Farzaana; Verma, Naresh K


BACKGROUND Thirteen serotypes of Shigella flexneri (S. flexneri) have been recognised, all of which are capable of causing bacillary dysentery or shigellosis. With the emergence of the newer S. flexneri serotypes, the development of an effective vaccine has only become more challenging. One of the factors responsible for the generation of serotype diversity is an LPS O-antigen modifying, integral membrane protein known as O-acetyltransferase or Oac. Oac functions by adding an acetyl group to a...[Show more]
