Miao lab, Innate Immunity: Caspase-11 and protection against intracellular pathogens

In the 2/22/2013 issue of Science, Ed Miao's group demonstrates a protective role for caspase-11 in responding to intracellular bacteria that escape the phagosome. See the UNC News article here.

Dr. Miao's paper was recently featured in a "Research Highlight" article in Nature Reviews Microbiology.

And Cell Host & Microbe (Volume 13, Issue 3, 13 March 2013, Pages 243–245) previewed an article about this work: "Caspase-11: The Noncanonical Guardian of Cytosolic Sanctity" (Shin and Brodsky).
