It is well established that by targeting integrins, microbes not only establish an intimate contact with host tissues, but also trigger cellular responses including bacterial internalization. This review will summarize current knowledge about the role of these integrin-dependent processes during infection and how bacteria assure that they efficiently connect to integrins for host cell invasion or translocation of effector molecules. Furthermore, we will discuss recent insight demonstrating that bacteria can harness the physiological, matrix-binding function of integrins for promoting host colonization. From these combined studies, it is becoming evident that integrins are a common nexus for the manipulation of cellular functions by bacterial pathogens. Approaches to disrupt this connection might be an appropriate means to obtain broad-acting tools to modulate a spectrum of infectious diseases.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Hauck, Christof</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:contributor>Borisova, Marina</dc:contributor> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Current Opinion in Cell Biology ; 24 (2012), 5. - S. 637-644</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:creator>Münzner-Voigt, Petra</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2012-10-26T08:30:09Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:issued>2012-10</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:title>Exploitation of integrin function by pathogenic microbes</dcterms:title> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Münzner-Voigt, Petra</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/page/termsofuse"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2012-10-26T08:30:09Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Borisova, Marina</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
