The uptake and release of chlamydiae in infections of highly specialized intestinal, absorptive epithelial cells of the ileum of newborn calves were studied. Infection occurred only through the brush border of the enterocytes. The chlamydial elementary bodies were adsorbed onto the microvilli, a process that induced pinocytosis of the elementary bodies and formation of endosomes containing one dense-centered chlamydial form. The endosomes moved towards the supranuclear region of the enterocytes… CONTINUE READING
