The mechanisms of entry of Ileal symbiont intracellularis into IEC-18 rat enterocyte cells and subsequent bacterial proliferation were examined in centrifuge-assisted and static infections. Live, oxygen or neomycin damaged, and formalin killed bacteria, each rapidly entered viable cells. Live or damaged bacteria did not enter cells nor proliferate within cells after static infection of cells cooled to 5 degrees C. Infection of cells was greatly reduced at 20 degrees or 32 degrees compared to… CONTINUE READING
