Leishmania dices away cholesterol for survival.

Abstract : Host lipid alterations are centrally involved in Leishmania donovani infection, and infected patients exhibit hypocholesterolemia. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Ghosh et al. (2013) show that the metalloprotease GP63 released by L. donovani in the liver cleaves DICER1, inhibiting miR-122 maturation, which regulates cholesterol metabolism. These events decrease serum cholesterol and promote parasite growth.
