    A bipartite iron-dependent transcriptional regulation of the tryptophan salvage pathway in Chlamydia trachomatis

    Nick D Pokorzynski et al.
    Analysis of the atypical tryptophan biosynthetic operon of Chlamydia trachomatis revealed the simultaneous regulation of transcriptional initiation and termination by an iron-dependent repressor, expanding known regulatory mechanisms of this pathway.

    Chlamydia trachomatis-containing vacuole serves as deubiquitination platform to stabilize Mcl-1 and to interfere with host defense

    Annette Fischer et al.
    Obligate intracellular Chlamydia secrete a deubiquitinating enzyme (Cdu1) into the membrane of the Chlamydia-containing vacuole to deubiquitinate selected host proteins and support the survival of the bacteria during genital infection.

    Sequestration of host metabolism by an intracellular pathogen

    Lena Gehre et al.
    The bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis, a human pathogen, hijacks its host’s energy supplies by using the parasitophorous vacuole as a glycogen synthesis and storage compartment.

    Intermediate Filaments: The sweet side of vimentin

    Natasha T Snider et al.
    A protein modification called O-linked glycosylation regulates the interactions between vimentin molecules under normal conditions, and the ability of Chlamydia bacteria to replicate after they infect cells.

    Chlamydia interfere with an interaction between the mannose-6-phosphate receptor and sorting nexins to counteract host restriction

    Cherilyn A Elwell et al.
    Structure of a pathogen effector complexed to Sorting Nexin 5 reveals an evolutionarily conserved interface that is required for retromer-dependent host restriction.

    Site-specific glycosylation regulates the form and function of the intermediate filament cytoskeleton

    Heather J Tarbet et al.
    The in vivo modification of the canonical intermediate filament protein vimentin with O-linked beta-N-acetylglucosamine affects its function in filament assembly, cell migration and host-pathogen interactions.

    Insect endosymbiont proliferation is limited by lipid availability

    Jeremy K Herren et al.
    The endosymbiont Spiroplasma can only proliferate if it can acquire sufficient hemolymph lipids from its insect host.

    Peptidoglycan precursor synthesis along the sidewall of pole-growing mycobacteria

    Alam García-Heredia et al.
    Peptidoglycan precursor synthesis occurs in both growing and non-growing regions of the mycobacterial cell surface.

    A type I IFN-dependent DNA damage response regulates the genetic program and inflammasome activation in macrophages

    Abigail J Morales et al.
    Activated macrophages initiate a robust DNA damage response that depends on type I IFN and regulates their genetic program and inflammasome activation, establishing a mechanistic link between DNA damage responses and innate immunity.
