Conclusion. Our results show that p38 activity plays a crucial role in controlling intracellular S enteritidis in U937 cells. Enhanced replication of bacteria in B27-expressing cells requires that the HCs contain glutamic acid at position 45 and cysteine at position 67. Furthermore, in transfectants expressing misfolded B27 HCs, p38 inhibition had no significant effect on bacterial replication, suggesting that in these cells, the p38 pathway may not function properly.
