  • Streptococcus uberis commonly causes bovine mastitis; however, the pathogenesis of this infection is poorly understood. In this study, the ability of S. uberis to invade mammary epithelial cells in culture was investigated. Two strains of S. uberis isolated from bovine mammary secretions were capable of invading bovine mammary epithelial cells in vitro at different levels, suggesting strain differences in invasiveness. Invasion required microfilaments but not microtubular cytoskeletal elements… CONTINUE READING
