Towards a Synthetic Chloroplast

E. coli and S. elongatus lead to differential effects when phagocytosed by macrophages.

Large scale granulation is observed when macrophages take up E. coli that is A.) not expressing llo and to an even greater extent with B.) E. coli expressing llo off of the inducible lac promoter of the pNS3 vector. In contrast, macrophages displayed similar morphology two days after infection with C.) empty vector S. elongatus, D.) S. elongatus expressing inv and llo, and E.) macrophages untreated with bacteria but maintained at 30°C in bright light for two days.
