Cytokine concentration 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. Supernatants were collected 1 day post infection and the concentration of the different cytokines IL-1β, TNF, IL-6, IL-8 and IL-10 were determined by using the kit Cytometric Bead Array. The concentration is reported as pg/ml. The cytokine secreted by heat-killed sample of each serovar were quantified and are indicated for each dataset. 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.
