    Outer Membrane Vesicle Proteomics to Discover the Pathogenicity of Acinetobacter baumannii
    Author(s): Vishvanath TiwariVishvanath Tiwari

     Acinetobacter baumannii causes pneumonia, urinary tract infection, bacteremia, meningitis, blood stream infection and wounds of combat casualty [1,2]. The ability of Acinetobacter to adhere at abiotic surface and form biofilm helps in its survival in the harsh environmental conditions such as desiccation, nutrient deficiency and antibiotic treatment. There is rising concern about antimicrobial drug resistance among Acinetobacter baumannii since the past decade [3-12]. Gram negative bacteria constitutively secrete Outer Membrane Vesicles (OMVs) into the extracellular milieu that play crucial role in the delivery of virulence factors to host cells [13]. OMVs also act as intercellular communicasomes in polyspecies communities by enhancing bacterial survival, nutrient acquisition, biofilm formation, and pathog.. Read More»
