Toxin Glycan Binding: Lectin Keys Unlocking Host and Tissue Specificity
In this issue of Cell Host and Microbe, Lee et al. define the glycan binding specificity of a variant of typhoid toxin produced by a non-typhoidal Salmonellae serotype. The authors elegantly demonstrate that tissue and host specificity of the toxin are related to specific glycan binding characteristics of the toxin.
