Equipment needed: Filter Centrifuge
1 Cultivation of L929 (ACC 2) or HeLa (ACC 57) cells
Compound Amount Unit Conc. [g/L] Conc. [mM]
IMDM-Medium 45.0 ml - -
Fetal bovine serum 5.0 ml - -
(100 x)
0.5 ml - -
2 Filter-sterilize (0.2 µm) and keep no longer than 4 weeks. Store at room temperature to facilitate detection of contamination.
3 Prepare a 25 cm2 flask and seed cells according to standard protocols (see DSMZ catalogue for ACC 2 and ACC 57). Incubate at 37°C plus 5% CO2. When a confluent layer has formed, infection can be carried out.
4 Exchange medium with 6 ml of Infection Medium (as above with the addition of 1 µg/ml cycloheximide (final concentration)) and add 500 - 1000 µl of EB stock solution (thawed quickly to 37°C).
5 Centrifuge for 1 h onto the cell layer at 1600 rpm at 20°C.
6 Incubate at 37°C + 5% CO2. Control cells daily and look for inclusions. Not all Chlamydiae form well-visible inclusions, ultimately, immunofluorescence or in situ-hybridization techniques are necessary to visualize inclusions.
