Editor's Choice Feature

Cellular Microbiology

We are pleased to announce the latest Editors' Choice paper:

The Salmonella Typhimurium effector protein SopE transiently localizes to the early SCV and contributes to intracellular replication (pages 1723–1735)

Pascale Vonaesch, Mikael E. Sellin, Steven Cardini, Vikash Singh, Manja Barthel and Wolf-Dietrich Hardt

Salmonella Typhimurium uses temporally ordered expression of two Type-III-secretion systems (TTSS) to translocate effectors into an engaged host cell, thereby driving invasion (TTSS-1), and maturation of the intracellular niche (TTSS-2). Two main TTSS-1 effectors, SopE and SopE2, are here shown to be secreted also after entry, to co-localize with intracellular Salmonella, and to promote early replication within the host cell. Combined with previous studies, this work highlights the key importance of TTSS-1 invasion effectors for host cell manipulation also post-entry. S. Tm (green) surrounded by SopE (red) within an infected HeLa cell, stained to reveal filamentous actin (phalloidin; light blue) and the nucleus (DAPI; gray).

Aims & Scope

Cellular Microbiology Aims and Scope

Cellular Microbiology aims to publish outstanding contributions to the understanding of interactions between microbes and eukaryotic cells and tissues in the context of pathogenic or symbiotic relationships, including the use of model hosts. Submission on cell biological aspects of microbes, such as their intracellular organization or the establishment and maintenance of their architecture are also encouraged. Contributions must provide mechanistic insights obtained through imaging, cellular, biochemical, structural or genetic approaches.

Thank you to our Reviewers

Cellular Microbiology

Cellular Microbiology is very thankful to the reviewers who guarantee the high standard of the work that is published and so strongly influence the impact of the journal in the field of host-pathogen interactions. We have published a list of the people who have shown a particularly high level of commitment by accepting to handle multiple papers and providing rapid review over the past year.
