Bacterial adhesion: we proposed a comparative study of the genes involved in the adhesion of Gram-positive pathogenic bacteria. In the lab, we use multiple genes that coded for the proteins involved in the adhesion of bacteria. Our study model are based on the mechanisms used by Streptococcus pyogenes, Corynebacterium diphtheriae and Gram-negatives Salmonella enterica y Escherichia coli. Furthermore, we are working on the implementation of strategies that interfere with the folding of these adhesins (Rivas-Pardo et al PNAS 2018).
