An O Antigen Capsule Modulates Bacterial Pathogenesis in Shigella sonnei

Shigella is the leading cause for dysentery worldwide, and there has been a shift in dominance from S. flexneri to S. sonnei. Christiane Gerke and colleagues reveal that S. sonnei possesses a high molecular weight sugar capsule that plays a role in both invasion and protection of the bacteria against host innate immune defense.
