Cellular PC and LPC synthesis and their release into medium of hepatocytes infected with C. trachomatis. Isolated rat liver hepatocytes were infected with C. trachomatis at a multiplicity of infection of 5 to 20 CFU. At 20 h post infection or post mock-infection, cells were incubated for 16 h with [methyl-3H]choline and radioactivity incorporated into A. cellular PC, B. cellular LPC and C. medium PC (circles) and LPC (squares) determined. Results represent the mean of three dishes from two separate sets of hepatocytes.
