Method Abstract: "By using time-lapse microscopy, [investigators] have imaged delivery of the Salmonella type III effector protein SipA/SspA into animal cells in real time."
Comments P.12549 right column 3rd paragraph: "SipA is highly expressed by ≈26% of the S. typhimurium population (6 ± 3 × 10^3 SipA molecules per expressing bacterium) (Fig. 1 A and B see also Materials and Methods, Fig. 5, which is published as supporting information on the PNAS web site, and Supporting Materials and Methods)."
