Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Vomocytosis, or nonlytic exocytosis, has been reported for Cryptococcus neoformans since 2006. Since then, the repertoire of vomocytosing pathogens and host cells has increased and so have the molecular components linked to vomocytosis occurrence. Nonetheless, the mechanism underlying this phenomenon, whether it is triggered by the host or the pathogen, and how it affects disease progression are still unresolved. This review contains a summary of the main findings regarding vomocytosis and the outstanding questions puzzling scientists to this day.
