i -NOS expression upon fungus-macrophage interaction. Phase contrast microscopy (A, C and E) and confocal immunocytochemistry (B, D and F) images of activated murine macrophages alone (A-B), activated murine macrophages with untreated F. pedrosoi (C-D) or with TC-treated F. pedrosoi (E-F). The presence of i-NOS revealed by the anti-i-NOS antibodies conjugated to fluorescent FITC was observed in all experimental conditions tested (B, D and F). Bars = 10 nm.
