Cover: Mycobacterium tuberculosis-(red) infected macrophages (green) die by apoptosis. Uninfected macrophages (blue) flock to dying cells and engulf the dead cell debris containing M. tuberculosis. This process of apoptotic cell cleanup—efferocytosis—is a bactericidal mechanism, as both the internalized cell debris and bacteria are destroyed, promoting pathogen clearance and immune activation (see p. 21).
