Bacterial Pathogenesis

Viral pathogens use adhesins for initiating infections and antigenic variation to avoid immune defenses. Antigenic drift and antigenic shift in influenza viruses. In antigenic drift, mutations in the genes for the floor proteins neuraminidase and/or hemagglutinin lead to small antigenic modifications over time. Results from in vitro research show stability of antibiotics whereas maintaining high […]
