Neutrophils as Trojan Horse Vehicles for Brucella abortus Macrophage Infection
Brucella abortus is a stealthy intracellular bacterial pathogen of animals and humans. This bacterium promotes the premature cell death of neutrophils (PMN) and resists the killing action of these leukocytes. B. abortus-infected ...
Intracellular passage triggers a molecular response in that increases its infectiousness
Brucella abortus is a facultative extracellular-intracellular pathogen that encounters a diversity of environments within the host cell. We report that bacteria extracted from infected cells at late stages (48 h post-infection) ...
