• How diarrhea pathogens switch into attack mode at body temperature

    Many bacterial pathogens excrete toxins as soon as they have entered the host in order to suppress its immune response. Researchers have analyzed what happens on the molecular level when the diarrhea pathogen Yersinia pseudotuberculosis switches into attack mode. To this end, they examined so-called RNA thermometers, which signal to the bacteria whether they are in the host.
