Results of the invasion and proliferation assay performed with gfp-producing Salmonella. The results show a representative of two independent experiments conducted in threefold. The number of cell-associated bacteria was counted in 100 macrophages. The results represent the mean bacterial count per macrophages ± standard error of the mean (sem) after invasion (0 h) and after proliferation (6 h), as well as the proliferation rate.
|Mean bacterial count ± sem||Proliferation rate|
|PAM||0 h||6 h|
|Control||2.7 ± 0.11||7.6 ± 0.35||2.8|
|0.025 μg/mL DON||3.9 ± 0.13||10.1 ± 0.39||2.6|
