Serotype-converting bacteriophages and O-antigen modification in Shigella flexneri

S. flexneri is subtyped into various serotypes based on the combination(s) of antigenic determinants present in the O-antigen. Structural studies have shown that all S. flexneri O-antigens, except for serotype 6, are polymers of the basic tetrasaccharide repeating unit, which is found in S. flexneri serotype Y strains.

This project is open to Honours, Masters and PhD students
