IL-8, TNF-α and IL-6 secretion levels in culture supernatants. Scatter-plot graphs representing the concentration of IL-8 (pg/ml) in BCEC-1 (a) and F3 (b) supernatants infected with Nc-Spain7 and Nc-Spain1H at 24 and 56 hpi, respectively, the concentration of TNF-α (pg/ml) in the BCEC-1 supernatants at 8 hpi (c) and in the F3 supernatants at 4 hpi (d) and 8 hpi (e), and the concentration of IL-6 (pg/ml) in the BCEC-1 supernatants at 4 hpi (f). Data are represented as individual points. Horizontal lines represent median values for each group. ****P < 0.0001, ***P < 0.001, **P < 0.01, *P < 0.05. Unbracketed symbols represent differences with respect to the control group, while significant differences between isolates are denoted by horizontal square brackets
