  • Intracellular invasion is an important aspect of Carrión's disease caused by Bartonella bacilliformis. Both the hematic and tissue phases of the disease involve the initial attachment of the organism to erythrocytes and endothelial cells, respectively. Using two different approaches, preliminary evidence is provided that B. bacilliformis interacts with multiple surface-exposed proteins on human erythrocytes. Utilizing Western blot analysis, it was demonstrated that the organism binds several… CONTINUE READING
