SodM contributes to resisting Mn starvation during infection.

Wild type C57BL/6 (C57) and C57BL/6 S100A9-/- (CP-/-) mice were infected with either wild type, ΔsodA or ΔsodM S. aureus. Mice were sacrificed 96 h after infection, and bacterial loads in the livers were enumerated. p <0.05 as determined by Mann-Whitney test.
