Real Time Observation of Neutrophil White Blood Cell Recruitment to Bacterial Infection In Vivo

S. flexneri are human-adapted Escherichia coli bacteria that have gained the ability to invade the colonic mucosa (large intestine membrane lining), causing inflammation and bacillary dysentery disease. The intracellular lifestyle of this pathogen has been well-studied in vitro and Shigella has recently gained recognition as an inflammatory paradigm to study host innate immunity. However, in …
