Bacterial quorum sensing (QS) signaling molecules are important mediators of immunomodulation. However, how microbes utilize immunomodulatory signals to maintain long-term presence and thwart clearance and how the host avoids harmful inflammatory response as a result of pathogen's presence remain unclear. The project focuses on a previously unidentified link between a microbial derived QS molecule and host immunomodulation mediated by epigenetic and metabolic reprogramming. Elucidation of this reprograming may aid in the understanding of host resilience and immunology memory at large, including host resilience to commensals and and offer opportunities for therapeutic treatments that may train the host to become resilient to pathogen damage.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
