The invasion strategies used by Yersinia species involve the 'hijacking' of host cellular signaling pathways, often involving microbial gene products that mimic the functions of the cellular proteins. Yersinia uses a type III secretion system to inject these microbial gene products, referred to as Yersinia effector proteins, into the host cytosol. Yersinia effector proteins can inhibit the host immune system through a diverse array of mechanisms including inhibition of the inflammatory response… CONTINUE READING
