Table 1 Fusion index of different macrophages/monocytes after infection with BCG (pMV261) and BCG (pAS-MDP1)

From: The role of the mycobacterial DNA-binding protein 1 (MDP1) from Mycobacterium bovis BCG in host cell interaction

Cell type MOIa Days after infection Fusion index (FI) [%]
    Uninfected cells Infection with BCG (pMV261) Infection with BCG (pAS-MDP1)
RAW264.7 50 5 3.0 5.3 27.2
MM6 50 3 2.3 2.3 7.4
Human blood monocytes 1 11 1.1 8.7 15.1
  1. a MOI = multiplicity of infection (number of mycobacteria per number of monocytes/macrophages).
