Abstract

Sieara Claytor studied the effect of serotonin and glutathione in the pathogenesis of the frog-killing fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd). She found that serotonin inhibits Bd growth in vitro and Bd uses protein glutathionylation to protect an important glycolytic protein. This is will aid in developing future therapeutics.
