Persistent infection of mouse fibroblasts (L cells) with Chlamydia psittaci: evidence for a cryptic chlamydial form.

Abstract

When monolayers of mouse fibroblasts (L cells) were infected with enough Chlamydia psittaci (strain 6BC) to destroy most of the host cells, 1 in every 10(5) to 10(6) originally infected cells gave rise to a colony of L cells persistently infected with strain 6BC. In these populations, the density of L cells and 6BC fluctuated periodically and reciprocally… (More)
