Infection of bovine brain microvessel endothelial cells with Cowdria ruminantium elicits IL-1 beta, -6, and -8 mRNA production and expression of an unusual MHC class II DQ alpha transcript.


Cowdria ruminantium is a bacterial parasite that infects ruminants, causing an acute and often fatal disease. These obligate intracellular Gram-negative bacteria preferentially infect neutrophils and vascular endothelial cells, especially in the brain. The present study was performed with bovine brain microvessel endothelial cells in culture, infected by C… (More)
