Article Title: Impact of Fusobacterium nucleatum in the gastrointestinal tract on natural killer cells
Figure Lengend Snippet: Effects of Fusobacterium nucleatum , Peptostreptococcus anaerobius , and Parvimonas micra on natural killer cells in vitro. Natural killer 92 cells were cultured for 24 or 48 h with each organism at a multiplicity of infection of 100:1, 250:1 or 500:1. Post-incubation, viability in the cultures was assessed using trypan blue staining. A: Fusobacterium nucleatum ; B: Peptostreptococcus anaerobius ; C: Parvimonas micra . F. nucleatum : Fusobacterium nucleatum; P. anaerobius : Peptostreptococcus anaerobius ; P. micra : Parvimonas micra .
