Although filamentous morphology in bacteria has been associated with resistance to phagocytosis, our understanding of the cellular mechanisms behind this process is limited. To investigate this, we followed the phagocytosis of both viable and dead Legionella pneumophila filaments. The engulfment of these targets occurred gradually and along the longitudinal(More)
Membrane-bound ribosomes and messenger RNA remained associated with the microsomal membranes of human fibroblasts after cultures were treated with Verrucarin A, an inhibitor of initiation which led to extensive run-off of ribosomes from polysomal structures. When a membrane fraction from Verrucarin-treated cells containing such inactive ribosomes and mRNA(More)
