Src family kinases (SFKs) regulate key cellular processes and are emerging as important targets for intracellular pathogens. In this commentary, we briefly review the role of SFKs in bacterial pathogenesis and highlight new work on the role of SFKs during the intracellular cycle of Chlamydia species.
