Infectivity of ΔHSP70-II promastigotes in immunocompromised SCID mice. Groups (n = 4) of SCID mice were inoculated with 1 × 107 ΔHSP70-II promastigotes and the parasite burdens were determined in spleen and liver after 1 or 2 months post-infection. As control, a group (n = 4) of BALB/c was similarly infected, and the parasite burdens were determined 1 month post-infection.
