NF-κB activation results for VSSA and hVISA/VISA isolate pairs. Stably transfected RAW cells with an ELAM-NF-kB reporter construct were exposed to formaldehyde killed VSSA and hVISA/VISA pairs for 6 hours. Results are presented as fold NF-κB activation for hVISA/VISA compared to VSSA and are the result of multiple replicates. (* p < 0.05)
