Proportions of sporocyte and mature cyst stages of Pneumocystis carinii.
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Whole organism population was isolated from the lungs of immunosuppressed animals as previously described . Sporocyte and mature cyst stages were counted from RAL-555-stained smears according to the number of nuclei in each life cycle stage. Percentages of sporocyte and cystic stages with N nuclei in the fraction of sporocytes and mature cysts were given as mean of three independent experiments (n = 70, n = 55, n = 50). N = number of nuclei per fungal cell. SD = standard deviation.(a)
Sum of intermediate sporocytes with 2, 3 and 4 nuclei.(c)
Sum of late sporocytes and mature cysts with 5, 6, 7 and 8 nuclei.
