Hemagglutination activity of Treponema denticola grown in serum-free medium in continuous culture.

Hemagglutination by different Treponema denticola strains was observed for erythrocytes of human, horse, bovine, and rabbit origin. The growth of T. denticola ATCC 33520 in serum-free medium in continuous culture enabled us to study the hemagglutinating activity of freshly harvested spirochetes of a defined physiological status. The hemagglutinating… CONTINUE READING
