ABSTRACT Brucella abortus is a facultative intracellular bacterium capable of surviving inside professional and nonprofessional phagocytes. The microorganism remains in membrane-bound compartments that in several cell types resemble modified endoplasmic reticulum structures. To monitor the intracellular transport of B. abortus in macrophages, the kinetics of fusion of phagosomes with preformed lysosomes labeled with colloidal gold particles was observed by electron microscopy. The results… Expand
Brucella alters endocytic pathway in J774 macrophages
TLDR
The results indicate that the virulent strain not only occupies two different kinds of compartments but also alters the endocytic pathway of the cell it parasitizes, unlike what has been reported for non-professional phagocytes, like HeLa cell. Expand
Brucella suis-Impaired Specific Recognition of Phagosomes by Lysosomes due to Phagosomal Membrane Modifications
TLDR
Fluorescence microscopy results revealed that fusion properties of latex bead-containing phagosomes with lysosomes were not modified in the presence of live Brucella suis in the cells, and flow cytometry results concluded that fusion inhibition was restricted to the pathogen phagosomal membrane, as noted in the in vivo experiments. Expand
Intracellular Survival of Brucellaspp. in Human Monocytes Involves Conventional Uptake but Special Phagosomes
TLDR
It is indicated that human monocytes readily internalize Brucella in a conventional way using various phagocytosis-promoting receptors, and survival of internalized brucella depends on an acidic intraphagosomal pH and/or close contact with the phagosomal wall. Expand
Identification of Brucella spp. genes involved in intracellular trafficking
TLDR
The preponderance of virB mutants demonstrates the importance of this secretion apparatus in the intracellular multiplication of B. melitensis and examines the intrACEllular fate of three VirB mutants in HeLa cells by immunofluorescence. Expand
Opsonized Virulent Brucella abortus Replicates within Nonacidic, Endoplasmic Reticulum-Negative, LAMP-1-Positive Phagosomes in Human Monocytes
TLDR
Opsonized B. abortus in human monocytes survives within phagosomes that remain in the endosomal pathway and replication of virulent Brucella abortus within these vesicles corresponds with an increase in intraphagosomal pH. Expand
Role of the Brucella suis Lipopolysaccharide O Antigen in Phagosomal Genesis and in Inhibition of Phagosome-Lysosome Fusion in Murine Macrophages
TLDR
The LPS O side chain is involved in inhibition of the early fusion between Brucella suis-containing phagosomes and lysosomes in murine macrophages, and it is proposed that the L PS O chain might be a major factor that governs the early behavior of bacteria inside macrophage. Expand
Brucella Evades Macrophage Killing via VirB-dependent Sustained Interactions with the Endoplasmic Reticulum
TLDR
It is shown in a model of Brucella abortus infection of murine bone marrow–derived macrophages that a fraction of the bacteria that survive an initial macrophage killing proceed to replicate in a compartment segregated from the endocytic pathway. Expand
Rhodococcus equi can survive a phagolysosomal environment in macrophages by suppressing acidification of the phagolysosome.
Rhodococcus equi is one of the most important causes of pneumonia in foals and has emerged as a significant opportunistic pathogen of immunosuppressed hosts such as human immunodeficiencyExpand
Membrane sorting during swimming internalization of Brucella is required for phagosome trafficking decisions.
TLDR
The results suggest that membrane sorting requires swimming internalization of B. abortus and decides the intracellular fate of the bacterium, and that Brucella -induced macropinosome formation is a different mechanism from PMA- induced macropinocytosis. Expand
Role of Cholesterol and the Ganglioside GM1 in Entry and Short-Term Survival of Brucella suis in Murine Macrophages
TLDR
The results suggest that lipid rafts may provide a portal for entry of Brucella into murine macrophages under nonopsonic conditions, thus allowing phagosome-lysosome fusion inhibition, and provide further evidence to support the idea that the Phagosome maturation inhibition is restricted at the phagosomal membrane.

Brucella abortus Transits through the Autophagic Pathway and Replicates in the Endoplasmic Reticulum of Nonprofessional Phagocytes
TLDR
The results are compatible with the hypothesis that pathogenic B. abortus exploits the autophagic machinery of HeLa cells to establish an intracellular niche favorable for its replication within the ER. Expand
Early Acidification of Phagosomes ContainingBrucella suis Is Essential for Intracellular Survival in Murine Macrophages
TLDR
It is concluded that phagosomes with B. suis acidify rapidly after infection, and that this early acidification is essential for replication of the bacteria within the macrophage. Expand
Interactions between professional phagocytes and Brucella spp.
TLDR
This review is devoted to the relations between Brucella spp. Expand
Entry and Intracellular Localization of Brucella spp. in Vero Cells: Fluorescence and Electron Microscopy
Vero cells were inoculated with the six species of Brucella (B. abortus, B. melitensis, B. suis, B. neotomae, B. canis, and B. ovis) and examined by fluorescence and electron microscopy. All BrucellaExpand
Virulent Brucella abortus Prevents Lysosome Fusion and Is Distributed within Autophagosome-Like Compartments
TLDR
Virulent and attenuated Brucella abortus strains attach to and penetrate nonprofessional phagocytic HeLa cells and prevent lysosome-phagosome fusion and were found distributed in the perinuclear region within compartments resembling autophagosomes. Expand
Internalized Listeria monocytogenes modulates intracellular trafficking and delays maturation of the phagosome.
TLDR
The data suggest that by delaying phagosome maturation and subsequent degradation, Listeria prolongs survival inside the phagosomes/endosome assuring bacterial viability as a prelude to escape into the cytoplasm. Expand
Immunocytochemical characterization of the endocytic and phagolysosomal compartments in peritoneal macrophages
TLDR
The data argue first that the PLC is equivalent to the "tubular lysosomes" commonly described in macrophages, and second that the meeting of the phagocytic and endocytic pathway occurs in this compartment. Expand
Intracellular fate of vacuoles containing Toxoplasma gondii is determined at the time of formation and depends on the mechanism of entry.
TLDR
The results indicate that Toxoplasma evades endocytic processing due to an absence of host regulatory proteins necessary to drive endocytical fusion, and that this divergence from normal maturation occurs during the formation of the primary vacuole. Expand
The opsonizing ligand on Salmonella typhimurium influences incorporation of specific, but not azurophil, granule constituents into neutrophil phagosomes
TLDR
The results suggest that the ligand-receptor interactions mediating phagocytosis influence incorporation of neutrophil-specific granule contents into phagosomes. Expand
Biogenesis of phagolysosomes proceeds through a sequential series of interactions with the endocytic apparatus
TLDR
Observations suggest that phagolysosome formation is a highly dynamic process that involves the gradual and regulated acquisition of markers from endocytic organelles. Expand
