This report examines the fusion of phagocytic vesicles with the large phagolysosome-like vacuoles induced in Chinese hamster ovary cells by the bacterium Coxiella burnetti or the Protozoan flagellate Leishmania amazonensis. Infection by these organisms is compatible with cell survival and multiplication. Fusion was inferred from the transfer of microscopically identifiable particles from donor to target vesicles. Donor vesicles contained heat-killed yeast, zymosan, beta-glucan or latex beads… CONTINUE READING
