|Abstract:||Burkholderia pseudomallei, the causative agent of melioidosis, is a Gram-negative saprophytic bacterium capable of surviving within phagocytic cells. To assess the role of BopC (a type III secreted effector protein) in the pathogenesis of B. pseudomallei, a B. pseudomallei bopC mutant was used to infect J774A.1 macrophage-like cells. The bopC mutant showed significantly reduced intracellular survival in infected macrophages compared to wild-type B. pseudomallei. In addition, the bopC mutant displayed delayed escape from endocytic vesicles compared with the wild-type strain. This indicates that BopC is important, and at least in part, needed for intracellular survival of B. pseudomallei. © 2013 The Microbiological Society of Korea and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.|
