Abstract

Pathogenic Listeria monocytogenes replicates within the host cytosol; little is known about how it transits from cell to cell, spreading infection. A recent study implicates infection-induced membrane damage as a trigger for efferocytosis, the recognition and uptake of dead cells, thereby tricking neighboring cells into taking up the invader.
