Incorporation of 3H-thymidine in Mycobacterium leprae within differentiated human macrophages.


The factors influencing the incorporation of 3H-thymidine (3H-Tdr) in the DNA of Mycobacterium leprae within macrophages derived from human blood have been evaluated. Fifty strains of M. leprae derived from skin nodules of patients with lepromatous leprosy were studied for their ability to incorporate 3H-Tdr. Control macrophages of the same donor maintained… (More)
