Chemiluminescence (CL) was used to investigate the competence of turkey monocytes to mount a respiratory burst response upon interaction with Chlamydia psittaci. The oxidative activity of purified turkey monocytes, following inoculation with the avian C. psittaci serovar D strain 92/1293, was studied using luminol- and lucigenin-enhanced CL. Purified turkey monocytes were inoculated with C. psittaci at multiplicity of infection (MOI) of approximately 100, 10 and 1. In the presence of luminol, no detectable CL or only a weak CL response was obtained, and if present it increased with increasi…
