Enzymes help bacteria evade host immunity

The Reuter group and their collaborators from University of Massachusetts (Amherst) and Boston College recently wrote a review article that was published  in Chemical Reviews (short summary here, full article here).  The article was featured on the cover of the journal. It summarises decades of research on an important class of enzymes secreted by bacteria. The article notably provides a paradigm for how to use a combined computational/experimental approach to study proteins that transiently interact with cell membranes.
