Toxins are powerful bacterial effectors. They can target all the key functions within eukaryotic cells, but until recently the cellular DNA was spared from the bacterial attack. This view has changed with the discovery of bacterial genotoxins: effectors that cause DNA damage. Teresa’s research group has contributed to characterize the effects of these toxins on mammalian cells.

Host: Ujjwal Neogi, Division of Clinical Microbiology.
