The genome of the basidiomycete pathogenic yeast Cryptococcus neoformans carries two UDP-glucose epimerase genes (UGE1 and UGE2). UGE2 maps within a galactose cluster composed of a galactokinase homologue gene and a galactose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase. This clustered organization of the GAL genes...

The leading edge of the global problem of antibiotic resistance necessitates novel therapeutic strategies. This study develops a novel systems biology driven approach for killing antibiotic resistant pathogens using benign metabolites. Controlled laboratory evolutions established chloramphenicol and streptomycin resistant pathogens...

Depleting regulatory T cells (Treg cells) to counteract immunosuppressive features of the tumor microenvironment (TME) is an attractive strategy for cancer treatment; however, autoimmunity due to systemic impairment of their suppressive function limits its therapeutic potential. Elucidating approaches that specifically...
