Growth of F. tularensis LVS in THP-1 cells, PEC, and J774A.1 cells

Time (h)Concn (log10 CFU/well) in:
THP-1 cellsPECJ-774A.1 cells
0a5.06 ± 0.47b5.03 ± 0.165.15 ± 0.03

  • a Cells were infected with F. tularensis LVS at an MOI of 200 for 60 min, and extracellular bacteria were removed by washing (time zero).

  • b The data are from one of four representative experiments and are means ± standard deviations based on triplicate wells. The inoculum was 1.0 × 105 CFU of F. tularensis LVS per well.
