Scientists discover that host cell lipids facilitate bacterial movement

...embly, Dr. Southwick and his colleagues decided to explore the roles these lipids play in Listeria infection. "We had expected to see PIP2 and PIP3 only at the very back of Listeria where new actin assembly was taking place," recalls Dr. Southwick. "To our surprise these lipids also localized to the front o...
