Roles of RpoN in the resistance of Campylobacter jejuni under various stress conditions
Pathology and Microbiology
The article discusses a study by Jiae Yun and colleagues conducted to examine the roles of RpoN in the resistance of Campylobacter jejuni (C. jejuni) under various stress conditions, published in the current issue of the journal. Survivability of an rpoN mutant was compared with the wild-type C. jejuni. The results show that RpoN plays an important role in C. jejuni's defense against various stresses which this bacterial pathogen may encounter during transmission to and infection of humans.
