Disease relevance of uspA

  • Role of the universal stress protein UspA of Salmonella in growth arrest, stress and virulence [1].

High impact information on uspA

  • Inactivation of uspA in S. typhimurium C5, lead to increased susceptibility to stress conditions [1].
  • An in silico screen of the Salmonella genome sequence revealed that Salmonella typhimurium LT2 possesses a homologue belonging to the universal stress protein A (UspA) family [1].
  • Furthermore, UspA makes an important contribution to the in vivo virulence of Salmonella in mice thus highlighting the importance of stress resistance regulation in pathogenicity and survival within the host [1].
