Orientia tsutsugamushi: a neglected but fascinating obligate intracellular bacterial pathogen

In this PLOS Pathogens Pearls article, Jeanne Salje discusses O. tsutsugamushi, including the bacterial pathogen and scrub typhus, and also the genome of O. tsutsugamushi. Salje further identifies  microtubule-mediated intracellular trafficking, and the budding out of host cells. Salje concludes with information on the minimal peptidoglycan-like structure in O. tsutsugamushi

Pathogen manipulation of host metabolism: A common strategy for immune evasion

In this PLOS Pathogens Pearls article, Freyberg and Harvill examine three diverse but highly prevalent global pathogens that disrupt host metabolism during infection: Trypanosoma cruzi, Plasmodium falciparum, and Bordetella pertussis, responsible for Chagas disease, malaria, and whooping cough, respectively. They identify effects of host immune response on metabolism during infection and their clinical implications.
