A. Survival time and B. percent weight change after infection with STm. Strains are in ascending order of survival and weight change if survival was equal between strains. Bacterial burden in C. liver and D. spleen. Dots represent individual mice; black dots represent males and grey dots represent females. Solid lines represent medians for strain and sex. A two-tailed Student’s T test was used to determine statistical significance (* P <0.05).
