L. pneumophila is a model organism for investigating the mechanisms by which intracellular pathogens acquire the metabolites needed for replication while evading the microbicidal mechanisms of the macrophage. We determined that intracellular L. pneumophila replicate in close association with the endoplasmic reticulum and suggest that L. pneumophila exploits… CONTINUE READING
