Tricked or trapped - Two decoy mechanisms in host-pathogen interactions

Abstract:

Antagonistic interactions between hosts and pathogens frequently result in arms races. The host attempts to recognise the pathogen and inhibit its growth and spread, whereas the pathogen tries to subvert recognition and suppress host responses. These antagonistic interactions drive the evolution of `decoys' in both hosts and pathogens. In host±pathogen interactions, the term decoy describes molecules that mimic a component at the host±pathogen interface that is manipulated during infection. D...
