Our team (in collaboration with the groups of E. Borozée-Durant (INRA Jouy-en-Josas), R. Voulhoux (CNRS Marseille) and R. Lobinski (CNRS Pau) has discovered a novel system of metal acquisition in a pathogenic bacterium, staphylococcus aureus. It is a new potential target for the design of an antibiotic.
