Interaction Information:

Comment Although IFN-gamma is key to controlling Q fever, apoptosis is closely controlled by the invading Coxiella to maintain viability of the host cell during the lengthy inhabitation. Infected host cells show decreased caspase activity, induction of a pro-survival transcriptional response, including Akt and Erk 1/2 activation, and decreased release of cytochrome c.
