The exit of intracellular pathogens from host cells is an important step in the infectious cycle, but is poorly understood. It has recently emerged that microbial exit is a process that can be directed by organisms from within the cell, and is not simply a consequence of the physical or metabolic burden that is imposed on the host cell. This Review summarizes our current knowledge on the diverse mechanisms that are used by intracellular pathogens to exit cells. An integrated understanding of… CONTINUE READING
