Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The interaction between Treponema hyodysenteriae and isolated swine intestinal epithelial cells or mouse adrenal cells in culture was examined. Studies were performed in which treponemes were incubated with each type of anomal cell in an atmosphere of 5% CO2 in air. Coincubation was terminated at various time intervals, and the percentage of treponemal attachment evaluated by light microscopy. The extent of attachment was dependent on both incubation time and temperature. The mechanism of attachment to the animal cell surface was examined by scanning electron microscopy. Interaction of the parasite with the host cell did not appear to alter cellular morphology or result in changes of the cell surface at the site of attachment. Preference for a cellular site of attachment was not found.
