Iron enhancement of experimental infection of mice by Tritrichomonas foetus

Abstract

The ability of a microbial invader to acquire iron from its vertebrate host has been recognized as an important virulence mechanism in some pathogenic bacteria. We examined the involvement of similar mechanisms in an experimental infection of mice by a protozoan pathogen of cattle, Tritrichomonasfoetus. In a series of experiments, outbred ICR mice were… (More)
