Immunofluorescence stained confocal images of bacteria in infected brain-slices. a Delineation of an infection focus (yellow line). L. monocytogenes are stained in red. The surface area covered by L. monocytogenes was drawn and calculated using the Fluoview software (Olympus FV10-ASW Version Magnification 20×. b Representative double-immunofluorescence of a L. monocytogenes infected brain-slice. The vast majority of bacteria are found within microglia. Left: Microglia are stained with CD68 in green. Center: L. monocytogenes in red. Right: Overlay (bar = 40 μm)
