Tracking the dynamic interplay between bacterial and host factors during pathogen-induced vacuole rupture in real time.
Escape into the host cell cytosol following invasion of mammalian cells is a common strategy used by invasive pathogens. This requires membrane rupture of the vesicular or vacuolar compartment formed around the bacteria after uptake into the host cell. The mechanism of pathogen-induced disassembly of the vacuolar membrane is poorly understood. We established a novel, robust and sensitive fluorescence microscopy method that tracks the precise time point of vacuole rupture upon uptake of Gram-n...Expand abstract
