Phagocytosis of immunobiotic Lactobacillus jensenii TL2937 by porcine blood monocytes-derived dendritic cells (MoDCs). MoDCs were stained with antibodies for CD172a, and CD11R1 and two cell populations were defined: CD172a+CD11R1+ or CD172aCD11R1+ (a). MoDCs were treated with the immunobiotic strain L. jensenii TL2937 or the non-immunoregulatory strain L. plantarum TL2766. Untreated MoDCs cells were used as controls. Bacterial phagocytosis by CD172a+CD11R1+ or CD172aCD11R1+ MoDCs cells was evaluated using flow cytometric analysis (b). Histograms represent data from the flow cytometric analysis, as follows: cells treated with lactobacilli (solid line) and, untreated control cells (dot line). The results represent data from three independent experiments using different donors. In experiments cells were used in a concentration of 5.0 × 106 cells/well
