Fig. 4

Role of mast cells upon mouse infection by Borrelia. C57BL/6 (white bars) or KitWsh −/− (black bars) mice were infected intradermally with Borrelia burgdorferi (s.s.) (Bb) 297 strain (103 bacteria/100 μl) by syringe inoculation. The relative quantification of Bb, presented as copies of flab transcript per 104 copies of gapdh transcripts, at the site of inoculation (skin of the mouse back) was measured by qPCR at different time points (d = day) after the infection. Results of three separate experiments are presented. *P < 0.05
