Project context and summary :

Pathogen leptospires are responsible for the zoonotic disease leptospirosis. During infection, Leptospira are confronted with dramatic adverse environmental changes such as deadly reactive oxygen species (ROS). Defenses against ROS, e.g. peroxidase activity, are crucial for Leptospira virulence and the adaptive response to ROS is controlled by PerR regulators. We aim at studying how small non-coding RNA participate in the adaptive response to oxidative stress in pathogen Leptospira.
