Participation to a Science paper

15 December 2017

A successful collaboration between several European and Japanese labs led to a publication in the prestigious American journal Science on the role of plant-specific sphingolipids on the toxicity of microbial toxins.

Adiilah Mamode-Cassim and Sébastien Mongrand get involved in the lipid part, and the purification of this so peculiar plant-specific lipids!

Eudicot plant-specific sphingolipids determine host selectivity of microbial NLP cytolysins.
