Schematic representation of conditions subjected to microarray analysis and number of differentially expressed genes. A. Similar expression profiles were observed for the comparisons between the reference condition and the control conditions consisting in i) mock infection (bacteria in cell culture medium) or ii) adherent bacteria (in the presence of cytochalasin D 1 μg/ml). On the opposite, an important number of genes were found differentially regulated between reference condition and internalized bacteria after 2 or 6 h of intracellular survival. See material and methods section for details. B. Numbers of genes found differentially regulated are indicated for each condition. The proportion of non-characterized genes annotated as genes with "unknown function" appears dark grey.
