  3. This fluorescence micrograph, provided by Dr. Peter Lauer of Cerus Corp., shows Listeria monocytogenes strain 10403S at 5 hr. post infection in J774 cells. Bacteria (green) were stained with polyclonal anti-listeria O antigen antibody and a FITC secondary. Actin (red) was stained with Rhodamine phalloidin and DNA (blue) was visualized with DAPI.
  4. The lifecycle diagram was provided by Professor Daniel Portnoy in the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology at UC Berkeley. A detailed description of the Listeria monocytogenes lifecycle can be found at http://www.textbookofbacteriology.net/Listeria.html.
  5. The photomicrograph shows a kidney epithelial cell from Potoroo tridactylis infected with Listeria monocytogenes. Filamentous actin is stained red with rhodamine phalloidin. The bacteria are stained green by indirect immunofluorescence with polyclonal antibody raised against Listeria monocytogenes.
