The interaction of Listeria monocytogenes with endothelial cells represents a crucial step in the pathogenesis of listeriosis. Incubation of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) with wild-type L. monocytogenes (EGD) provoked immediate strong NO synthesis, attributable to listerial presentation of listeriolysin O (LLO), as the NO release was missed… CONTINUE READING
