Bacterial lipids earmarked with ubiquitin for pathogen clearance

Rune Busk Damgaard, Jonathan N. Pruneda

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


As a component of cell-autonomous immunity, cytosolic bacterial invaders are earmarked with the protein modifier ubiquitin for targeted xenophagic destruction. Otten et al. (2021) reveal that unique bacterial lipids are unconventional sites for ubiquitination and initiate downstream pathogen clearance.
