Shigella capture by host cell filopodia is regulated by microRNAs
Scanning electron micrograph depicting Shigella flexneri captured by host cell filopodia. MicroRNA miR-29b-2-5p, through the repression of its direct target UNC5C, dramatically increases host cell filopodia, which promote bacterial capture and internalization. Ana Eulalio et al.
