Identification of a Response Regulator Gene in Campylobacter Jejuni
Bacterial infection strategies can be described as adaptations by the pathogen to a series of microenvironments within the host. In order to succeed, bacteria must constantly adjust their survival and growth in the surrounding conditions. This is achieved by utilising signal transduction systems, including the two-component histidine protein kinase (HK)/response regulator (RR) systems which are able to detect stimuli, process them and direct the production of adequate cellular responses.
