Salmonella is a gram-negative bacilli, facultative anaerobic and the Salmonella enterica Typhimurium (S. typhimurium) is the most common and studied serovar that infect humans. This bacterium can be easily genetically manipulated and has an available genome sequence. That makes it possible to use these mutants for different goals, like vaccines and tumor-treatment, considering recent studies using these attenuated strains in an attempt to reduce tumor mass in murine models. This project aims to construct and characterize a double mutant Salmonella Typhimurium from two single mutants previously built by our group. This new mutant can participate in the current studies from the group with the intention of constructing a vaccine strain.
