Infection with Opportunistic Bacteria Triggers Severe Pulmonary Inflammation in Lupus-Prone Mice

Figure 2

Infection induced elevated apoptosis of lung cells in the lupus-prone mice. B6 and B6/lpr mice were infected with Hi and sacrificed two days later. (a) Apoptosis of lung cells was determined by the TUNEL assay. The nuclei were counterstained with DAPI dye (blue) and TUNEL-positive nuclei (green fluorescence, indicated by red arrowheads in the merged photos). . (b) Apoptosis score for the lung was calculated. Data were expressed as . mice for each treatment group; . This experiment is representative of three individual experiments.
