You are what you don’t eat: The impact of nutritional immunity.
Metals are essential cofactors for all forms of life. During infection, the immune system leverages this essentiality by limiting the availability of these critical nutrients in an attempt to starve invaders. Despite this Staphylococcus aureus and other pathogens remain capable of causing devastating disease. This seminar will discuss how pathogens overcome this host defense known as Nutritional Immunity and the impact these adaptions have on the host-pathogen interface.
