The bacterial pathogens Listeria monocytogenes and Shigella flexneri recruit host factors that enable them to use actin polymerization as the driving force to facilitate their spread into neighbouring cells. It is now becoming clear that other pathogens, including viruses, have developed a number of different strategies to use the actin cytoskeleton of the host to their advantage during the infection process.
