Description: Caption:
Produced in 2011, by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), this photomicrographic image, created using a fluorescent light equipped microscope, depicts what were red-colored mouse macrophages, 12-hours after having been inoculated with a virulent strain of green glowing, Francisella tularensis bacteria. The cells on the left were untreated, while the cells on the right were treated 3-days in advance with CLDC+MPF (cationic liposome non-coding DNA complexes (CLDC), combined with crude F. tularensis membrane protein fractions (MPF)). The untreated cells fail to control replication of F. tularensis, as evidenced by their contents of the green bacteria.. In contrast, cells on the right, activated with the CLDC+MPF therapeutic, have nearly eliminated all of the bacteria.
