New Editorial & Report: Phagocytosis of Bacteria

On my desk this morning? A review by Flannagan and Grinstein on the use of knockdown approaches in Drosophila and zebrafish to study phagocytosis of bacteria. The original article is Ulvila et al. (2011). Info on both below.

Flannagan & Grinsten (2011) Fly fishing with RNAi catches novel effectors of phagocytosis. J. Leukoc. Biol. 89:643-645.

Ulvila et al. (2011) Cofilin regulator 14-3-3[] is an evolutionarily conserved protein required for phagocytosis and microbial resistance. J. Leukoc. Biol. 89:649-659.
