Growth kinetic of
in lungs after intraperitonel infection of C57Bl/6 mice with triple
deletion mutants. Infection dose for wild type, KDT9 and KDT8 strains was identical (ca. 103 CFU per animal). See legend to Figure 1 and Materials and Methods for details. Dotted lines represent the kinetics of infection with the wild type shown on Figure 1 for comparison.
