Phagocytosis and killing of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae by alveolar macrophages and polymorphonuclear leukocytes isolated from pigs.

Abstract

To study the cellular response of phagocytic cells to Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae, we investigated whether porcine alveolar macrophages (AM) and polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) are able to phagocytize and intracellularly kill A. pleuropneumoniae in vitro. Bacterial cultivation methods of A. pleuropneumoniae were used to assess in vitro phagocytosis… (More)
