Genital serovariants of Chlamydia trachomatis establish infection by attachment, entry and multiplication within human endometrial epithelial cells. In previous studies, a chlamydial recombinant Escherichia coli was identified which exhibited a specific adherent phenotype to endometrial epithelial cells closely resembling that observed for a genital strain of C. trachomatis. One of the plasmid-encoded products expressed by the recombinant is a 28 kDa protein. In this study, localization of the… CONTINUE READING
