RESEARCH INTERESTS: Our lab is focused on the study of staphylococcal virulence, its genetic and regulation. There are two major areas:

1. Global regulation of virulence genes by agr. Virulence in S. aureus is regulated by a complex network of regulatory determinants, the most important of which is the agr locus, which we have identified and characterized. The agr locus contains a two-component signaling module that is autoinduced by a small semi-cyclic peptide (AIP), that is encoded within the locus, is secreted, and then binds to AgrC, the signal receptor, activating the system. agr operates by autoinduction and is therefore a quorum sensor.
