Autolysis and opsonization of E. faecalis 12030ΔbgsB. A Spontaneous bacterial autolysis. Cells were grown to mid-log phase, resuspended in 10 mM sodium phosphate buffer containing 5% Triton X-100 and the decrease of the OD 600 at 30°C was recorded over time. B Bacterial killing in vitro after 90 min in the presence of 6.5% rabbit complement (white bar), 2 × 107 human PMN plus complement (gray bar) and rabbit antiserum raised against whole bacterial cells (serum dilution 1:2500) plus PMN and complement (black bar). Bars represent means ± SEM.
