Shigella navigates tight corners.

PMID:  22520458     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
In this issue, Fukumatsu and colleagues (2012) find that Shigella preferentially spread from cell-to-cell at unique intercellular junctions. Shigella protrusions invade adjacent cells at junctions where three cells meet, the tricellular junction. The tight junction protein tricellulin marks these sites and is important for Shigella spread.
