- Discovery of how a gene that regulates factors involved in bacteria pathogenicity acts
A discovery has been made of the way in which the glgS gene (now renamed as the “surface composition regulator”, scoR) acts in bacteria and how the mechanisms involved in bacterial infection can be altered by manipulating this gene, which indirectly affects glycogen production. The finding has been protected through the application for a patent and the exploiting of it is now pending a response ...
