Serum profiling was used to distinguish mice infected with wild-type or mutant Listeria monocytogenes from noninfected control mice. Identifications of significant electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) sera peak areas between Listeria-infected- and control mice were performed using t tests. ESI-MS cohort peak distributions differed from mice(More)
