Detection of intracellular LPS in macrophage / hepatocyte co-cultures infected with LVS (open bars), spp. holarctica (grey filled bars) or spp. mediasiatica (black filled bars) and untreated control (hatched bars). A) Different amounts of macrophages in the co-culture were tested (6, 12 and 22 % of macrophages on total cell count). Flow cytometric detection of intracellular LPS in macrophages (MFI mean fluorescence intensity); B-D) percentage of remaining detectable macrophages after infection of the co-cultures with B) 6 % macrophages/94 % hepatocytes, C) 12 % macrophages/ 88 % hepatocytes and D) 22 % macrophages/ 88 % hepatocytes 72 h post infection.
