Formation of interferon-gamma and tumor necrosis factor in mice during Salmonella typhimurium infection.

Formation of interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) and tumor necrosis factor (TNF) during Salmonella typhimurium infection was investigated in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-sensitive C3H/HeN and C57BL/10ScSn(B10ScSn), and LPS-resistant (lpsd mutant) C3H/HeJ and C57BL/10ScCr(B10ScCr) mice. When infected with 50 colony-forming units (CFU) of S. typhimurium C5, C3H/HeN and… CONTINUE READING
