Reactive arthritis is fueled by amyloid protein during salmonella infection

Reactive arthritis is fueled by amyloid protein during salmonella infection
Like the infrastructure of an apartment building, a fibrous protein known as curli amyloid that is produced by bacteria provides the supportive framework for biofilms—thick extracellular substances made by bacteria that enable multiple bacterial cells to assemble, survive, and thrive together. Curli amyloid, however, is also a key factor in diarrheal illness brought about by bacterial infection, and its harmful effects may extend well beyond the gastrointestinal tract.
