From: Phosphate starvation enhances phagocytosis of Mycobacterium bovis/BCG by macrophages

Fig. 2

Phosphate deprivation increases the viability of mycobacteria within macrophages. After 4 h phagocytosis, mycobacteria viability was analyzed by FACS using the LIVE/DEAD viability assay. A dot plot was set to differentiate living from dead mycobacteria (a). The survival rate was calculated using the formula: % viability = # of bacteria in live region / # of bacteria in dead region x (100) (b). p < 0.05 Mann Whitney test. Results of 3 experiments are presented
