Albumin enhances chlamydial infectivity on human placental cells.

Abstract

Chlamydia trachomatis (L2) adhere to and infect chorionic membrane in vitro. Similarly, chlamydiae pre-exposed to either chorion homogenate, newborn calf serum or pure bovine serum albumin display a higher infectivity against mouse fibroblast cells in vitro. Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of the chorion homogenate displays a peptide band which co… (More)
