Scientists uncover mechanism allowing bacteria to survive the human immune system

Researchers have uncovered molecular details of how pathogenic bacteria fight back against the human immune response to infection.Scientists at the University of East Anglia (UEA) and Institut de Biologie Structurale (CEA-CNRS-UGA, France) have identified the structure of NsrR, a bacterial protein that binds to DNA and plays a key role in the bacterium's resistance to nitric oxide (NO), which is produced in the initial immune response to infection
