The effect of protein II and pili on the interaction of Neisseria gonorrhoeae with human polymorphonuclear leucocytes.

Abstract

Colonial variants of Neisseria gonorrhoeae strain P9 expressing different pili and/or outer membrane protein II (P.II) were investigated with respect to their interaction with human polymorphonuclear leucocytes (PMN). Two assay systems were used. A phagocytic killing assay measured the intracellular survival of gonococci, and PMN chemiluminescence (CL) was… (More)
