Project: Interactions of Salmonella Typhimurium with turtle intestinal tract tissues and macrophages.
- project duration
- 01-SEP-98 – 31-DEC-99
- This study first concentrates on bacterium-host interactions of Salmonella Typhimurium with turtle intestinal tract tissues, through in vivo and in vitro experiments. Turtle colonisation following experimental infection as well as the course of an infection with these bacteria, will be examined. Furthermore, interactions between S. Typhimurium and turtle macrophages, will be studied.
