Fungal pathogenesis: A new venom.

Papon N, Naglik JR, Hube B, Goldman GH (2021) Fungal pathogenesis: A new venom. Curr Biol 31(8), R391-R394. (Review)


The pathogenesis of life-threatening infections caused by emerging fungal pathogens remains largely unexplored. A new study provides unprecedented evidence for the pivotal role of a new ricin-like protein toxin, named mucoricin, in causing organ necrosis and mortality in Mucorales infections.
