Linking inflammasome activation and phagosome maturation.
Cell Host and Microbe
One-third of the world's population is infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis, one of the most effective human pathogens, whose success is attributed to the deployment of remarkably sophisticated immune evasion mechanisms. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, a new study unravels a novel strategy of immune evasion and enhanced bacterial intracellular survival, which is dependent on inhibition of inflammasome activation by an M. tuberculosis-encoded metalloprotease.
