Chlamydia trachomatis is an important human pathogen with over 130 million new infections per year, world-wide. This obligate intracellular bacterium grows inside a membrane-bound compartment - the inclusion. Recently, using a global approach we were able to comprehensively describe the interactions of the bacterium with cellular proteins. These data indicate the inclusion is an intracellular trafficking hub embedded into the cellular vesicular trafficking pathways.
