Human neutrophil response to Salmonella

Dr. Trina Westerman’s genetic screen of Salmonella mutants identifies a sulfate import mutant that reduces human neutrophil respiratory burst. Heterogeneity in Salmonella gene expression impacts the magnitude of the neutrophil antimicrobial response ex vivo, suggesting a potential mechanism for evading neutrophil killing during infection.
