four 8–12 week old male mice per bacterial- dose and phenotype were used.


CFUs: colony-forming unit,

SEM: standard error of the mean,


WT: wild type,


hemB: hemB knock-out mutant with small-colony-variant phenotype,


CM: complemented mutant of S. epidermidis hemB.


Values with different superscripts within a row, assigned to the same infectious dose, and separated between abscess size and colonization vary significantly (p<0.05; Student's unpaired t-test).
