Research

I study the regulation of Salmonella  Typhimurium virulence factors, with a particular interest for the Pef fimbriae and the Rck invasin. Particularly, I am currently working on the regulation of these factors by the nucleoproteins H-NS, Hha and YdgT. Pef and Rck are respectively involved in adhesion and invasion of host cells.
We also demonstrated that Rck is directly regulated by the quorum-sensing regulator SdiA, suggesting a potential role of Rck in intestinal colonization.
