Our collaborative work with the Werth lab on S. aureus phospholipid release is published!

We found that the amount and types of released lipids did not correlate with S. aureus survival against daptomycin and that not all agr-deficient S. aureus strains display daptomycin tolerance due to released lipids by the bacteria, in contrast to previous work. Check out the paper below!
