Host interception of bacterial communication signals.

PMID:  19064249     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Pathogenic Staphylococcus aureus employs a cell-to-cell communication system to control virulence factor expression in the host during infection. In this issue, Peterson et al. (2008) report that host lipoproteins can sequester the S. aureus communication signal and antagonize virulence factor expression and pathogenesis in a murine model of infection.
