Trogocytosis-associated cell to cell spread of intracellular bacterial pathogens.


Macrophages are myeloid-derived phagocytic cells and one of the first immune cell types to respond to microbial infections.

Macrophages have other immune surveillance roles including the acquisition of cytosolic components… (More)
