Hatching of infective larvae from embryonated eggs in the intestine is an essential first step in Trichuris infections. There are three isolates of the murine parasitic nematode Trichuris muris: E, E-J (the E isolate maintained in Japan), and S. Incubation of T. muris embryonated eggs with the intestinal bacteria Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus induced in vitro hatching of the eggs, but Enterococcus faecalis failed to induce hatching. Bacteria-induced in vitro hatching of embryonated… CONTINUE READING
