Quantification of euo , ompA and omcB gene expression in chlamydiae infected monocytes and monocyte-derived DCs. Monocytes and monocyte-derived DCs were infected with C. trachomatis serovars Ba, D and L2 (MOI-3) and mock control. Copy numbers of euo, ompA and omcB genes were determined by isolating RNA at the indicated time points, followed by real-time PCR as described in materials and methods. Gene fold change was normalized to chlamydial 16S rRNA and determined by ddCt method with mock sample as reference gene. The mean of 3 independent experiments is shown and each experiment is pool of 2 donors. ***P < 0.001, **P < 0.01, *P < 0.05.
