Neisseria meningitidis, a major cause of bacterial meningitis and septicaemia, secretes multiple virulence factors, including the adhesion and penetration protein (App) and meningococcal serine protease A (MspA). Both are conserved, immunogenic, type... Read More about Nuclear trafficking, histone cleavage and induction of apoptosis by the meningococcal App and MspA autotransporters.
