Abstract

Our molecular understanding of how pathogen-microbiota-immune system interactions influence disease outcomes is limited. In this issue of Immunity, Behnsen et al. (2014) report that the cytokine interleukin-22, which usually plays a protective role, promotes pathogen colonization by suppressing related commensal bacteria.
