The graphics show the synthesis of the cytokine interleukin-12 (IL-12) and interferon-g (IFN-g) in T. gondii- infected SkMC. (A) SkMC control represented by the columns listed. Note the decreased synthesis of IL-12 during the development of culture. The dark columns represent infection, showing increased synthesis of IL-12 at all times of interaction. (B) Synthesis of the IFN-g in T. gondii- SkMC infected after 6, 24 and 48 h. SkMC control represented by the columns listed with a small increase in the synthesis of this cytokine during myogenesis. The dark columns represent infected cultures demonstrating the maintenance of INF-g synthesis at all times of interaction. t-test: *P ≤ 0,05.
