Dendritic Cells of the Murine Peyer’s Patches Colocalize with Salmonella Typhimurium Avirulent Mutants in the Subepithelial Dome
Salmonella typhimurium is an enteropathogenic bacterium that invades the murine Peyer’s patches (PP), the mucosal lymphoid tissue of the small intestine (1), and later spreads systemically resulting in a disease similar to typhoid fever in mice (2).
