MafK accelerates Salmonella mucosal infection through caspase-3 activation


Figure 3. MafK enhances Salmonella invasion and dissemination. Streptomycin-pretreated WT and MafK Tg mice were orally infected with Salmonella (n = 10 each group) for 48 h. Bacterial loads in the cecum (A), faeces (B), MLN (C), liver (D), spleen (E), and serum (F) were detected. All data are shown as the mean ± SEM. Student’s t test was performed. Statistical significance is indicated by *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01.
