Salmonella type III secretion effectors: pulling the host cell's strings.

Abstract

The enteric pathogen Salmonella employs type III secretion systems to transport a cocktail of effector proteins directly into its host cell. These effectors act in concert to control a variety of host cell processes to successfully invade intestinal cells and to establish an intracellular, replication-permissive niche. Recent studies reveal new insights… (More)
