 Innate immunity: Cargo-driven phagosome fate - Cell Signaling Update - Signaling Gateway
After uptake of bacteria by macrophages, phagosomes rapidly fuse with lysosomes (within 30 minutes) to become phagolysosomes, in which bacteria are degraded.
To explore the role of TLR signalling in the regulation of this phagosome-maturation pathway, the authors followed the uptake of fluorescent bacteria by wild-type macrophages or those that lacked expression of TLR2 and TLR4, or MyD88 — a crucial TLR-signalling adaptor protein.
In a single macrophage, bacteria and apoptotic cells are internalized into separate phagosomes; however, phagosomes containing apoptotic cells do not mature faster in macrophages that also have bacteria-containing phagosomes or in macrophages stimulated by the TLR4 ligand lipopolysaccharide, indicating that the inducible rate of maturation is phagosome autonomous.

When a mutation is introduced, phagocytosis is not completed because the calcium wave circles the cell and bypasses the phagosome altogether.
When the target is completely surrounded, one wave traveling around the cell's perimeter splits in two, with the second wave encircling the phagosome or sac-like compartment.
The sequence may also have a role in directing other cell activities, for example signaling the endoplasmic reticulum to form a spindle that connects the phagosome and the outer cell membrane.

 A systems biology analysis of the Drosophila phagosome : Abstract : Nature
Certain pathogens have evolved mechanisms to evade the immune system and persist undetected within phagocytes, and it is therefore evident that a detailed knowledge of this process is essential to an understanding of many aspects of innate and adaptive immunity.
However, despite the crucial role of phagosomes in immunity, their components and organization are not fully defined.
Proteomic analysis identified 617 proteins potentially associated with Drosophila phagosomes; these were organized by protein–protein interactions to generate the 'phagosome interactome', a detailed protein–protein interaction network of this subcellular compartment.
