Entry of bacteria into nonphagocytic cells (NPCs) has, perhaps more than any other postadhesion event, captured the interest of investigators within the field of host-pathogen interactions. There are three categories of bacterial growth in the presence of NPCs: obligate intracellular, facultative intracellular, and extracellular. The zipper mechanism of bacterial uptake is exemplified by and spp. Proteins encoded by the / locus appear to make up the secretion system, while the proteins encoded by the operon are effectors. Internalin binds to E-cadherin, and invasin binds to β-integrins. Currently, it appears that is example of the pathogenic organisms that utilize M cells to gain access to the subepithelial compartment. The invasome mechanism of entry has been described for species, which are able to penetrate and multiply within both nucleated and nonnucleated cells. The fact that a large bacterial aggregate is an apparent requisite for triggering of internalization via this mechanism suggests that expression of the effector molecules may require a quorum-sensing signaling cascade. There is little clear-cut evidence to date that the entry of predominantly extracellular pathogens into NPCs in vitro truly reflects a process that is important in the pathophysiology of infections. However, the fact that this phenomenon has been described for such a large and growing list of pathogens suggests that it must play an important role in the overall survival of the species in a susceptible host.

Figure 7.1

Schematic diagram illustrating the three primary mechanisms of bacterial internalization by NPCs. (A) Internalization of or species is accomplished by surrounding the microorganism via a tight phagosome. High-affinity binding of bacterial cell surface components to their cognate receptors on animal cells (see Table 7.3 ) is required to initiate cytoskeleton-mediated zippering of the host cell plasma membrane around the bacterium. (B) In internalization of and spp. by the trigger mechanism, bacterial effectors translocate through a type III secretion apparatus into the host cell cytosol and trigger a cascade of reactions including activation of small G proteins, which regulate the actin cytoskeleton, to induce membrane extensions. (C) Internalization by the invasome mechanism, described for spp. Internalization by NPCs involves the formation of a bacterial aggregate which is engulfed and subsequently internalized.
