Amino acid transport into McCoy cells infected with strains representative of the two major biovars of Chlamydia trachomatis has been studied to determine if uptake is increased during infection. Preliminary work suggested that the transport systems L, A/ASC (for neutral amino acid transport), N (for transport of Asn, Gln, and His) and y+ (for cationic amino acids) were present in McCoy cells. With lymphogranuloma venereum biovar strain 434, little difference in the influx of representative amino acids Trp, His, and Lys or the analogue 2-aminoisobutyric acid (AIB) was observed during infection. With trachoma biovar strain DK20, a small increase in the initial entry rate and equilibrium concentration of each amino acid was found. McCoy cells appear to have great capacity for concentrating amino acids, which might obviate the need for transport induction by chlamydiae under conditions favoring the growth of infectious organisms.
