Cellular immunity to intracellular bacteria.


Great progress has been made in understanding the mechanisms bacteria use to invade, survive and move within eukaryotic cells. It is clear that bacteria have found ways to manipulate host cell signal transduction pathways and the cytoskeleton to their advantage. To defend against prokaryotic invaders, the immune system has evolved mechanisms for the specific recognition of bacterial antigens.
