From: Macropinocytosis is responsible for the uptake of pathogenic and non-pathogenic mycobacteria by B lymphocytes (Raji cells)

Figure 3

Bacterial uptake by Raji B cells is inhibited by amiloride treatment. B cells were infected with M. tuberculosis (MTB), M. smegmatis (MSM), and S. typhimurium (ST) for 90 min. The cells were treated with 1, 3 or 5 mM amiloride before and during the infection. The CFU counts were determined and recorded; * statistically significant differences (p <0.01) when the untreated/infected cells were compared with amiloride-treated/infected cells.
