Rate of phagocytosis of S. gallolyticus subsp. gallolyticus strains by THP-1 macrophages. Phagocytosis rates (shown with mean and standard error) for the indicated strains are expressed as percentage of the inoculum, incubated for 30 min (n = 2). Significant differences between the isolates were calculated by the Mann-Whitney test (*: p ≤ 0.05; GraphPad Prism 6.0). The grey bars represent the survival of S. gallolyticus subsp. gallolyticus strains, and the white bar, that of Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC25923)
