An invasion-associated Salmonella protein modulates the actin-bundling activity of plastin.


The entry of Salmonella typhimurium into nonphagocytic cells requires a panel of bacterial effector proteins that are delivered to the host cell via a type III secretion system. These proteins modulate host-cell signal-transduction pathways and the actin cytoskeleton to induce membrane ruffling and bacterial internalization. One of these bacterial effectors… (More)
