From: Listeria monocytogenes virulence factor Listeriolysin O favors bacterial growth in co-culture with the ciliate Tetrahymena pyriformis, causes protozoan encystment and promotes bacterial survival inside cysts

Figure 6

Bacterial growth in dependence on the presence of T. pyriformis and LLO production. White and solid symbols show L. monocytogenes grown alone and in the presence of T. pyriformis, respectively; triangles and squares are correspondent to the EGDe and EGDeΔhly strains, respectively. Bacterial concentrations were determined by plating of corresponding dilutions. A representative experiment from two replicates with similar results is shown.
