Host resistance factor SLC11A1 restricts Salmonella growth through magnesium deprivation
The pleiotropic host resistance factor SLC11A1 (NRAMP1) defends against diverse intracellular pathogens in mammals by yet-unknown mechanisms. We compared Salmonella infection of coisogenic mice with different SLC11A1 alleles. SLC11A1 reduced Salmonella replication and triggered up-regulation of uptake systems for divalent metal cations but no other stress responses. SLC11A1 modestly diminished iron availability and acutely restricted Salmonella access to magnesium. Growth of Salmonella cells in the presence of SLC11A1 was highly heterogeneous and inversely correlated with expression of the crucial magnesium transporter gen...

BOSTON (CBS) – A new study in The Lancet finds that poor hand washing poses a bigger threat than under-cooked meat when it comes to the spread of the potentially deadly bacteria E. coli. E. coli is a bacterium that normally lives in our gut. Some strains are completely harmless. Others can cause serious infections, like those of the bladder and the bloodstream. And the germs are becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotics. After looking at tens of thousands of samples, researchers found humans are much more likely to get sick from E. coli strains passed from person-to-person rather than from contaminated meat. The...
