In vitro cultivation and partial characterization of Lawsonia intracellularis from a Japanese field case of porcine proliferative enteropathy



In vitro cultivation and partial characterization of Lawsonia intracellularis from a Japanese field case of porcine proliferative enteropathy



Journal of Veterinary Medical Science 68(6): 609-613



Lawsonia intracellularis isolated from a Japanese field case of porcine proliferative enteropathy (PPE) was cultivated and partially characterized. The bacterial cells isolated from the intestinal mucosa of a pig suffering from the acute form of PPE were used to inoculate rat small intestine cells (IEC-18) and human epithelial cells (HEp-2). Infected foci, which were stained with L. intracellularis-specific rabbit antiserum, were observed in the cell culture at 5 days post inoculation.
