TRAIL-R-deficient BMDMs express higher MIP-2 and IL-1β levels in L2- but not MoPn-infected cells.
BMDMs were infected with C. muridarum (MoPn) or C. trachomatis (L2) as for fibroblasts in Figure 2 above. qPCR analysis was performed for MIP-2 (A), and IL-1β secretion was measured by ELISA (B). Error bars represent standard deviations from 3 separate experiments. * indicates p<0.05; ** indicates p<0.01, compared to infected WT cells.
