Infection and transformation of dendritic cells from bovine afferent lymph by Theileria annulata.

Abstract

Following incubation with sporozoites of the protozoan parasite Theileria annulata, dendritic cells (DC), extracted from bovine afferent lymph, became infected and transformed into large, rounded, continuously proliferating cell lines. Phenotypic analysis of the transformed cells by immunostaining and flow cytometry revealed that they expressed MHC class I… (More)
