<p><b>(A)</b> LAMP1<sup>+</sup> vesicles fuse with the CCV at actin patches. Live cell images of a Vero cell at 3 dpi expressing lysosome-GFP (LAMP1) and actin-RFP. <b>(B)</b> Latrunculin A (LatA) treatment redistributes LAMP1<sup>+</sup> clusters at actin patches around the CCV to the juxta-nuclear region (white arrows). Live cell images of a Vero cell at 3 dpi expressing lysosome-GFP (LAMP1) and actin-RFP. <b>(C and D)</b> LatA treatment redistributes VAMP7<sup>+</sup> clusters at actin patches to the juxta-nuclear region (white arrows). Vero cells at 3 dpi were treated with LatA for 10 min prior to fixation and immunostaining for F-actin, VAMP7, and NMII. Histogram depicts the mean intensity ± SD of ≥ 60 cells for at least 3 independent experiments. Statistical significance was determined using Student’s t-test (****<i>P</i> <0.0001). NMII, <i>C</i>. <i>burnetii</i> Nine Mile phase II strain. Scale bar, 2.5 μm.</p
