Effect of culture supernatants on pneumococcal adherence

LGG LGG + Pnc
PMP843 19 F 103.4 ± 10.3% 85.8 ± 1.6%
PMP558 6B 79.4 ± 26.5% 95.5 ± 12.0%

PMP6 5 69.0 ± 43.0% 178.1 ± 26.9%

* Culture supernatants were obtained from wells in the cell adhesion assay that contained epithelial cells incubated with LGG alone (LGG), or together with pneumococci isolate (LGG + Pnc). Supernatants were filtered and added to wells in a separate adherence assay to measure their effect on the adherence of the corresponding pneumococcal isolate. Data were normalized to control (pneumococcal adherence when no supernatants added). n=2, P>0.05.
