Salmonella enterica are invasive intracellular pathogens that replicate within a membrane-bound compartment inside infected host cells known as the Salmonella-containing vacuole. How Salmonella obtains nutrients for growth within this intracellular niche despite the apparent isolation is currently not known. Recent studies have indicated the importance of glucose and related carbon sources for tissue colonization and intracellular proliferation within host cells during Salmonella infections… CONTINUE READING
