Abstract

The mechanisms by which Mycobacterium tuberculosis evades host immunity remain enigmatic. In a recent study in the journal Nature, Wang et al. report that an enzyme acting in the bacterial cytoplasm to degrade lipids also acts as an effector protein in the host cell cytoplasm to suppress inflammation.
