Electron microscopy was used to examine Haemophilus ducreyi adherence to and entry into eukaryotic cells of genital origin. A clinical H. ducreyi isolate (90-244) adhered in snake-like whorls to the surfaces of cervical carcinoma cells (HeLa 229), endometrial adenocarcinoma cells (HEC-1-B), and human neonatal foreskin fibroblast (HFF) cells. A prototype strain of H. ducreyi (CIP542) adhered in randomly organized clumps on the surfaces of HFF. Strain 90-244 entered HFF and HEC-1-B cells but did… CONTINUE READING
