Metabolic Integration of Bacterial Endosymbionts / Trends in Microbiology (Vol. 25 Issue 9)

Metabolic Integration of Bacterial Endosymbionts. Peter Mergaert discusses how antimicrobial peptides are key players in symbiotic interactions. Endosymbionts often go through genome reduction yielding incomplete metabolic pathways where they then rely on the host for missing enzymes and it was not clear how this exchange could occur with limited transporters in endosymbionts.
