Intracellular polysaccharide shedding by C. neoformans cells. Polysaccharide shedding capacity of C. neoformans strain H99 was tested in HPBMs. Top panel: Intracellular shedding of cryptococcal polysaccharide from C. neoformans cells into HPBMs after 18 h incubation. Bottom panel: HPBMs lacking intracellular cryptococcal cells showed no fluorescence. Bar = 10 μM
