Major review paper: Enzymes help bacteria evade host immunity

The Reuter group and their collaborators from University of Massachusetts (Amherst) and Boston College recently published an important review article in Chemical Reviews.  The article was featured on the cover of the journal (picture). It summarises decades of research on an important class of enzymes secreted by bacteria. The article notably provides a paradigm for how to use a combined computational/experimental approach to study proteins that transiently interact with cell membranes. At the Dept. of Chemistry, we are proud and happy about this important contribution to the scientific literature and the way it presents our department — Congrats to the authors!
