Infection of macrophages with Mycobacterium tuberculosis induces global modifications to phagosomal function (pages 843–859)
Maria Podinovskaia, Wonsik Lee, Shannon Caldwell and David G. Russell
The ability to survive in macrophages is key to the success of Mycobacterium tuberculosis as a pathogen. While it is known that the bacterium modulates the behavior of the vacuole in which it resides, the impact of infection on the physiology of other phagosomes has yet to be fully elucidated. This current study demonstrates that Mtb infection selectively modulates phagosome function, most specifically down-regulating lipolysis, which likely contributes to the cell's increased retention of lipids that may be metabolized by the bacterium.

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.
