1The percentage mean of apoptotic cells at 24 and 48 h. 2The percentage of total hemolysis, compared to 100% lysis in distilled water was performed 4 h after infection by using a suspension of 1% human erythrocytes. 3The percentage of cytotoxicity was determined 4 h after infection by MTT assay. 4The percentage of number of internalized bacteria per 100 HEp-2 cells in compare with number of adhering bacteria. Values correspond to the means from two experiments in triplicate.
