Ehrlichia chaffeensis is an obligatory intracellular bacterium which infects macrophages and monocytes. Double immunofluorescence labeling was used to characterize the nature of E. chaffeensis inclusion in the human promyelocytic leukemia cell line THP-1. E. chaffeensis was labeled with dog anti-E. chaffeensis serum and fluorescein isothiocyanate-conjugated anti-dog immunoglobulin G (IgG). Lissamine rhodamine-conjugated anti-mouse IgG was used to label various mouse monoclonal antibodies… CONTINUE READING
