ABSTRACT

The Welgevonden stock of Ehrlichia ruminantium, aetiological agent of heartwater, was propagated in baby hamster kidney (BHK) cells, Chinese hamster ovary (CHO-K1) cells and Madin Darby bovine kidney (MDBK) cells. The cultures required supplementation of the medium with cycloheximide for reliable growth of E. ruminantium. Growth of the Welgevonden stock in BHK and CHO-K1 cells could lead to the development of suspension cultures suitable for the mass production of E. ruminantium for an inactivated elementary body vaccine.
