Brucella is an intracellular facultative bacterium able to survive and multiply in professional and non-professional phagocytes. However, its adhesion and invasion mechanisms have not been elucidated yet. In this work, we assess the interruption of a BMEI0216 gene of Brucella melitensis, by using HeLa epithelial cells and murine macrophages for invasion and… CONTINUE READING
