EVT restrict intracellular growth of L. monocytogenes.
Intracellular growth curves of wild type L. monocytogenes in 3 cell types: primary placental fibroblasts (PF), choriocarcinoma cell line (BeWo), and primary extravillous trophoblasts (EVT). CFU/well were normalized to the 2-hour time point within each experiment. Each data point is an average of 3 independent experiments for PF and BeWo, and 10 independent experiments for EVT. Bars represent SEM.
