By Laetitia Bonifait, Steve J. Charette, Geneviève Filion, Marcelo Gottschalk and Daniel Grenier

Abstract

The Gram-positive bacterium Streptococcus suis is a major swine pathogen worldwide that causes meningitis, septicemia, and endocarditis. In this study, we demonstrate that the amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum can be a relevant alternative system to study the virulence of S. suis
