Toxicity of pneumolysin for Wt-SOD1 and G93A-SOD1 neuroblastoma cells. Rate of apoptotic cells in Wt-SOD1 SH-SY5Y and G93A-SOD1 SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cells after incubation with 0.5 μg/ml PLY for three hours (all cells = 100%). Please note the strong difference of the rate of apoptosis in wild-type and G93A-SOD1 transgenic cells exposed to pneumolysin (p < 0.001).
