Title: Chemical signaling in bacterial/host interactions

Host: José Lemos & Michelle Dziejman

Research Abstract: Different chemical signaling systems shape bacterial/host relationships towards commensalism or pathogenesis. Enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) is a deadly food borne pathogen that causes hemorrhagic colitis worldwide. The main reservoir for EHEC is cattle herds. EHEC colonizes the recto anal junction (RAJ) of cattle, forming attaching and effacing (AE) lesions employing the locus of enterocyte effacement (LEE) genes. Additionally, EHEC also requires the glutamate acid resistance (gad) system to survive the acidic stomachs of these animals and successfully colonize the RAJ. Coordinated expression of the LEE and gad genes is achieved through SdiA, which is a transcription factor that functions as a receptor for acyl-homoserine lactones (AHL). Although E. coli (including EHEC) does not produce AHLs, they have the ability to respond to these signals through SdiA. SdiA senses AHLs produced by the rumminal microbiota affect LEE and gad expression through SdiAto promote EHEC's cattle colonization. http://profiles.utsouthwestern.edu/profile/50556/vanessa-sperandio.html

Title: "The sweet tooth of innate immunity: Lectins as self/non-self recognition proteins"

Host: Jacques Robert

Seminar Abstract: Although lectins display a limited diversity in recognition, the presence of tandemly arrayed carbohydrate recognition domains (CRDs), of chimeric structures displaying distinct CRDs, of polymorphic genes resulting in multiple isoforms, and in some cases, of a considerable recognition plasticity of their carbohydrate binding sites, significantly expand the lectin ligand-recognition spectrum and lectin functional diversification. In this regard, analysis of structural/functional aspects of F-lectins—the most recently identified lectin family characterized by a unique CRD sequence motif, a distinctive structural fold, and nominal specificity for L-Fuc—has led to a greater understanding of non-self recognition by proteins with tandemly arrayed CRDs. In contrast, galectins were initially considered to bind endogenous ("self") glycans and mediate developmental processes, including cell differentiation and tissue organization or regeneration. In the past few years, numerous studies have described the diverse regulatory effects of galectins on immune homeostasis and cancer. More recently, however, evidence has accumulated to support the notion that galectins also bind exogenous ("non-self") glycans on the surface of potentially pathogenic microbes, parasites, and fungi, suggesting that galectins could function as pattern recognition receptors (PRRs). Galectins, however, can bind similar self/non-self molecular patterns on host and microbial cells. Furthermore, although some galectins can bind and kill bacteria, thereby displaying activity as innate immune recognition and effector factors, it appears that in most cases galectin-mediated recognition favors the potential pathogen rather than the host. Therefore, some galectins do not fit the definition of PRRs, underscoring the significant gaps in our knowledge about the structural and functional diversity, subcellular targeting, localization, and secretion of the galectin repertoire components in any given species, and the host-parasite co-evolutionary processes that have resulted in such interactions. http://medschool.umaryland.edu/FACULTYRESEARCHPROFILE/viewprofile.aspx?id=22021

Microbiology & Immunology Seminar Series

Anders P. Hakansson, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Microbiology and Immunology, The Witebsky Center for Microbial Pathogenesis & Immunology, University of Buffalo

Title: To be announced

Hosts: Steve Gill & Michelle Dziejman

Research Interests: My laboratory is focused on investigating the pathogenesis of the gram-positive, extracellular pathogen Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumococcus). S. pneumoniae is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality from respiratory tract and invasive infections in children and the elderly worldwide. Pneumococci effectively colonize the human nasopharynx and cause infections such as pneumonia, acute otitis media (AOM), meningitis and sepsis by disseminating to otherwise sterile sites.
