    Aim: Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus), previously considered an extracellular pathogen, can also survive in the intracellular environment of the host cell. It is now evident that autophagy controls intracellular survival of bacteria, however, the role of autophagy in controlling S. aureus survival in epithelial cells is not well understood. The objective of current work was to study the role of ubiquitin in regulating selective autophagy of S. aureus. Methods: Intracellular survival of S. aureus in epithelial cells was studied by gentamycin protection assay. Autophagy was monitored by...
