Analysis of MT4 attenuation in comparison to MT5 in Nos2−/−, Il-10−/−, CD40L−/−and wild-type C57BL/6 mice. Streptomycin pretreated mice were infected either with MT5 or MT4 (5x107 CFU by gavage; n = 5mice). Bacterial loads in cecum content (A), mLN (B), spleen (C) and liver (D) were assessed by plating at day 4 p.i.. n.s., statistically not significant; *, statistically significant (p < 0.05, Two-way ANOVA).
