Figure 5

Effect of purified CK2 and the supernatant of the virulent strain on the interaction between the L. braziliensis avirulent strain and macrophages and the phagocytosis of latex beads. The assay was performed as described in Section 2. The values are presented as the mean of 3 independent experiments conducted in duplicate ( indicates and indicates in relation to control avirulent strain; # indicates in relation to virulent strain; + indicates in relation to control latex beads; § indicates in relation to supernatant of latex beads; and ° indicates in relation to CK2 of latex beads; one-way ANOVA and Tukey’s post hoc test).
