Crucial for establishment of infection in the primary niche- the endothelial cells, required for colonization of endothelial cells, by mediating the intracellular delivery of effector proteins (BepA-BepG). Translocation of the Beps provokes distinct cellular phenotypes: (i) a massive cytoskeleton rearrangement, resulting in the engulfment of bacterial aggregates (a phenotype called 'invasome' formation), (ii) NF-kappaB-dependent proinflammatory activation, characterized by chemokine secretion and expression of cell adhesion proteins, and (iii) enhanced cell survival as a result of anti-apoptosis (iv) capillary-like sprout formation of endothelial cell aggregates
