    Thomas Candela
    Toxines et Pathogénie Bactérienne, Institut Pasteur, Paris, France
    J Bacteriol 187:7765-72. 2005

    Alejandro Piris-Gimenez
    Institut Pasteur, Unité Toxines et Pathogénie Bactériennes, Paris, France
    J Infect Dis 200:1381-9. 2009
    ..The Bacillus anthracis poly-gamma-D-glutamate capsule is essential for virulence. It impedes phagocytosis and protects bacilli from the immune system, thus promoting systemic dissemination...

    Can J Microbiol 55:627-32. 2009
    ..It is suggested that, like for Gram-positive bacteria, poly-gamma-glutamate has a role in virulence for pathogens and one in survival for other Gram-negative bacteria...
