Abstract

We studied the effects of various mouse interferon preparations on the growth of Coxiella burnetii in mouse fibroblasts. The addition of both recombinant interferon-gamma and a crude lymphokine preparation that contained interferon-gamma to infected L929 cells inhibited the growth of C. burnetii, whereas the addition of a crude preparation of type I interferons did not. Cycloheximide suppressed the inhibitory effects of recombinant interferon-gamma and crude lymphokines.
