Article Title: Staphylococcal Alpha-Toxin Is Not Sufficient To Mediate Escape from Phagolysosomes in Upper-Airway Epithelial Cells
Figure Lengend Snippet: Alpha-toxin is not sufficient to disrupt phagolysosomal membranes. (A) Alpha-toxin immunofluorescence analyses demonstrate that staphylococci (green, S. carnosus ; blue, S. aureus SA113 Δ spa ) expressing alpha-toxin (red) are found exclusively within
