Guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy
These guidelines are presented for the selection and interpretation of methods for use by investigators who aim to examine macroautophagy and related processes, as well as for reviewers who need to provide realistic and reasonable critiques of papers that are focused on these processes.
Comparative Genomics of Listeria Species
A large number of predicted genes encoding surface and secreted proteins, transporters, and transcriptional regulators are found, consistent with the ability of both species to adapt to diverse environments.
The Listeria transcriptional landscape from saprophytism to virulence
Using tiling arrays and RNAs from wild-type and mutant bacteria grown in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo, the transcription of its entire genome is analysed and it is discovered that riboswitches can act as terminators for upstream genes.
Bacterial Invasion: The Paradigms of Enteroinvasive Pathogens
The mechanisms underlying bacterial entry, phagosome maturation, and dissemination reveal common strategies as well as unique tactics evolved by individual species to establish infection.

Human E‐cadherin promotes entry of the bacterial pathogen Listeria monocytogenes into mammalian cells by interacting with internalin (InlA), a bacterial surface protein. Here we show that mouse…
Entry of L. monocytogenes into cells is mediated by internalin, a repeat protein reminiscent of surface antigens from gram-positive cocci
A Transgenic Model for Listeriosis: Role of Internalin in Crossing the Intestinal Barrier
In guinea pigs and transgenic mice expressing human E-cadherin, internalin was found to mediate invasion of enterocytes and crossing of the intestinal barrier, illustrating how relevant animal models for human infections can be generated.
Transcriptome analysis of Listeria monocytogenes identifies three groups of genes differently regulated by PrfA
A whole‐genome array based on the complete genome sequence of Listeria monocytogenes strain EGDe is constructed and it is suggested that PrfA may directly or indirectly activate different sets of genes in association with different sigma factors.
Entry of Listeria monocytogenes into hepatocytes requires expression of InIB, a surface protein of the internalin multigene family

Findings indicate that inIB is required for entry of L. monocytogenes into hepatocytes, but not into intestinal epithelial cells; inIB encodes a surface protein; and internalin plays a role for entry into some hepatocyte cell lines.
