<i>In vivo</i> murine model of DL infection measuring the ability of <i>L. lactis</i> expressing SdrF to establish a DL infection.

<p>(A) Adherence of control (MG1363 pOri) or SdrF-expressing <i>L. lactis</i> (MG1363 SdrF) to DL following implantation and infection. *, <i>P</i><0.05. (B) Adherence of control (MG1363 pOri) or SdrF-expressing <i>L. lactis</i> (MG1363 SrdF) to tissue surrounding the DL following implantation and infection. *, <i>P</i><0.05.</p>
