The demise of catalysis, but new functions arise: pseudoenzymes as the phoenixes of the protein world
In this issue Begg reviews the role of metal ions in the virulence and viability of bacterial pathogens (pages 77–87). The author gives an overview of the roles of iron, manganese, copper and zinc during infection. The cover image illustrates strategies employed by hosts to limit metal ions during bacterial infection.
