Identification of genes contributing to the intracellular replication of Brucella abortus within HeLa and RAW 264.7 cells.

Brucella abortus, the causative agent of brucellosis, can survive and replicate within host cells. Understanding bacterial virulence factors and bacteria-host cell interactions is critical for controlling brucellosis, yet very little is known about the virulence strategies and signaling pathways activated in phagocytes during infection to ensure their… CONTINUE READING
