Yersinia pestis Survival and Replication in Potential Ameba Reservoir
*Mean percentage of amebae containing >1 intracellular bacterium.
†Mean no. of intracellular bacteria per individual infected ameba.
‡Mean no. of surviving intracellular bacteria (relative to control) in experiments with 1 and 4 h of antibiotic drug exposure.
§We observed no replication in the intraameba replication assay, which we used to count intra-ameba bacterial colony-forming units before and after co-culture. However, we observed probable but nondefinitive mitotic bacterial replication in the TEM micrographs (Figure 4, panel A).
