Asya and Kylene publish manuscript in Infection and Immunity

January 2014

Congratulations to Asya and Kylene, whose manuscript “Assembly of NADPH oxidase in human neutrophils is modulated by the opacity-associated protein expression state of Neisseria gonorrhoeae” was accepted for publication in Infection and Immunity. This work shows that infection of neutrophils with opacity protein-negative gonococci prevents the proper assembly of the holoenzyme that generates reactive oxygen species,  to block the neutrophil oxidative burst.  The manuscript can be accessed here.
