Invasion assay of Listeria monocytogenes using Vero and Caco-2 cells.

The invasion ability of Listeria monocytogenes into cultured cells has been used to evaluate its pathogenicity. In this study, invasive ability was investigated using Vero and Caco-2 cell lines. The form of invasion showed no morphological differences between both cell lines inoculated with L. monocytogenes L89-H2 or L96-23C1 strains when double… CONTINUE READING
