Mycoplasma hominis infected Hela cells
Mycoplasma hominis is a facultative human pathogen primarily associated with bacterial vaginosis and pelvic inflammatory disease. Note that mycoplasma infection of tissue cells can alter the properties of those cells and therefore the results from experimental studies.
HeLa cells were analysed by scanning electron microscopy (A) and confocal laser microscopy (B) at 4 h, 24 h and 2 weeks (perm) post infection. Actin filaments were stained green (Alexa 488 phalloidin), nuclei blue (DAPI), surface-attached mycoplasmas magenta (B 4 h) or red (B 48 h and B perm) (mAb BG11 without fixation) and internalized mycoplasmas red (mAb BG11 after fixation and permeabilisation).
