Table 1 Comparison of infection rate in monocytes and monocyte-derived DCs infected with C. trachomatis serovars Ba, D and L2

From: Differential infection outcome of Chlamydia trachomatis in human blood monocytes and monocyte-derived dendritic cells

Infection percentage (%)
  Serovar Ba Serovar D Serovar L2
  2 days p.i 3 days p.i 2 days p.i 3 days p.i 2 days p.i 3 days p.i
Monocytes 32 ± 5 34.3 ± 6 33.6 ± 6 36.6 ± 7 44 ± 6 42 ± 3
DC 26.8 ± 2 20.7 ± 2 29.4 ± 1 24.4 ± 1 39.9 ± 4 25.4 ± 2
HeLa 78 ± 7 81.3 ± 6 83.5 ± 4 85.1 ± 7 88.7 ± 3 84.2 ± 3
  1. Monocytes, DCs and HeLa cells were infected with Chlamydia trachomatis serovars Ba, D and L2 and stained with anti-Chlamydia LPS antibody at 2 day and 3 day p.i.. Quantification of chlamydia infected cells were done by counting total number of cells (indicated by nuclei staining) and cells positive for Chlamydia and from 15 pictures The mean and ± SD were calculated from three independent experiments.
