HeLa cells were infected for 2 hr with different inoculums of ler-GFP EPEC (green). The following cultures were used: EPEC culture grown in DMEM for 3 hr at 37°C (activated), and bacteria from suspended SMALL, or BIG, colonies (SMALL and BIG respectively). Infected cells were fixed and stained for actin (phalloidin rhodamine-red) and DNA (DAPI-blue). Experiments were carried out in duplicate and representative images are shown. Similar results were obtained in two technical replicates. Scale bar: 20 µm.
