<p><b>Localization of intracellular <i>O</i>. <i>tsutsugamushi</i> in antigen presenting cells (APCs) in macaque tissues, (A and E) Eschar: BR1-02, (B) Spleen: BR1-02, (C) Draining lymph node (D-LN): BR1-03, (D) Non-draining lymph node (ND-LN): BR1-05 after 28 day pi.</b><i>O</i>. <i>tsutsugamushi</i> is labeled in green, APCs are characterized by MHC class II receptor (HLADR) and shown in red. Panels A-D show <i>O</i>. <i>tsutsugamushi</i> organisms associated with APCs in eschar, spleen, draining and non-draining lymph nodes. Panel E shows orthogonal views of confocal Z-stack images. DAPI nuclear counterstain in blue. Scale bars: 10 μm.</p
