Supplementary Material

Video microscopy of the neutrophil-Leishmania amazonensis interaction. Human neutrophils (N) were incubated with stationary-phase (P) promastigotes (1N:5P ratio) and NETs were stained with Sytox green. The interaction was recorded during 2:55 h using an epifluorescence microscope (Zeiss AxioObserver) equipped with Colibri ilumination LED system. Frames of live Leishmania-neutrophil interaction were acquired in high resolution mode using definitive focus correction, differential interference contrast (DIC) and green fluorescent excitation filter. White arrow indicates a NET-trapped promastigote. Note that netosis visualized as a green staining is increasing over time. Bar, 5 µm.
