Interaction Information:

Comment C. burnetii infection, using avirulent phase II organisms, causes differential phosphorylation of p38 and myosin light chain-2 (MLC-2), the downstream target of MLCK. The levels of phosphorylated p38 increased over those of uninfected cells at 2 hpi, then declined to near basal level between 48 and 72 hpi.
