Veterinary professor leads study published in leading scientific journal

Yasuko Rikihisa, professor of veterinary biosciences at Ohio State University, is lead author of a research study that appears online this
week in the early edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy
of Sciences
.
The study shows bacteria that cause the tick-borne disease anaplasmosis in humans create their own food supply by hijacking
a process in host cells that normally should help kill the pathogenic bugs.
Co-authors from Ohio State’s Department of Veterinary Biosciences also included
Hua Niu and Qingming Xiong.  (More)
