Photoconvertible pathogen labeling reveals nitric oxide control of Leishmania major infection in vivo via dampening of parasite metabolism.


The immune system can control infectious diseases through different modes of action, including direct killing or spatial confinement. Addressing how the immune system impacts pathogen biology in vivo has remained challenging. We expressed a photoconvertible fluorescent protein in pathogens in order to track their spatial dissemination in infected tissues… (More)
