Figure 1

TLR2 does not contribute to host defense against serotype 2S. pneumoniae after splenectomy. Survival (1A) and bacterial outgrowth (1B) of WT mice and TLR2KO mice. Mortality was assessed two times per day after infection with 5*105 CFU of S. pneumoniae (D39), for 1 week (8 WT versus 7 KO mice). Bacterial loads were determined 6 and 24 hours after infection with 6*105 CFU. Data of bacterial loads are expressed as scatter-plots.
