species are masters at subverting various host processes for their own use. The interactions that occur between species and host cells are complex. They have been studied more extensively with nonphagocytic cells such as epithelial cells than with macrophages, although some of the processes are common between these two cell types. For the review in this chapter, the author has concentrated on the events that occur in the host cell rather than to focus on the bacterial genes that mediate these events. Study of the cell biology of these interactions has revealed several interesting processes and provided new tools for the study of eukaryotic cell function. It has recently been shown that species trigger extensive membrane ruffling and macropinocytosis in macrophages and enter into a spacious phagosome. Bacterial invasins appear to significantly enhance uptake into phagocytic cells such as macrophages, since noninvasive mutants have decreased levels of invasion into cultured macrophages. One recurring theme about all of these exploitations of host cell function is that the bacteria achieve the desired effect by "nonconventional" mechanisms, as viewed by cell biologists. The advancement of this field is heavily dependent on other fields, especially cell biology. In addition, further characterization of the bacterial products that are involved in the various stages of infection will enhance the cell biology studies.
