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

Figure 4

Tremendous neutrophils were recruited to the lupus lung after infection. B6 and B6/lpr mice were infected with Hi (B6 Hi and B6/lpr Hi). Uninfected mice were set as controls (B6 UI and B6/lpr UI). Two days after infection, all the mice were sacrificed and BALF cells were isolated for analyses. (a) Absolute numbers of BALF cells. (b, c) Alveolar macrophages (CD11b-CD11c+) and (d, e) neutrophils (CD11b+Gr-1+) were determined by surface staining. Data were expressed as . mice for each treatment group; . ns: no significant difference. This experiment is representative of three individual experiments.
