Brucella is an intracellular pathogen responsible of a zoonotic disease called brucellosis. Brucella survives and proliferates within several types of phagocytic and non-phagocytic cells. Like in other pathogens, adhesion of brucellae to host surfaces was proposed to be an important step in the infection process. Indeed, Brucella has the capacity to bind to culture human cells and key components of the extracellular matrix, such as fibronectin. However, little is known about the molecular bases… CONTINUE READING
