Scientists modify a toxic protein to create a biosensor

October 30, 2019

Via: The Medical News

Some types of bacteria kill other cells by releasing proteins called “pore-forming toxins” (PFTs) that create holes in the cell membrane. The PFTs bind to the cell membrane and burrow into, creating a tube-like channel or pore. Once enough holes […]
