Exogenous Sialic Acid Transport Contributes to Group B Streptococcus Infection of Mucosal Surfaces
The Journal of Infectious Diseases, 08/08/2012
Pezzicoli A et al. – In vivo evidence showed that the presence of exogenous sialic acid significantly increased the capacity of GBS to infect mice at the mucosal level. These findings suggest that transport of sialic acid may also contribute to GBS infections.
