Vesicles as Vehicles for Virulence

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

Parasites have long been known to influence host responses to infection through the secretion of virulence factors. Extracellular vesicles are emerging as important mediators of these manipulations, and a new study by Szempruch et al. suggests they could play a crucial role in host responses to African trypanosome infections.
