- Materials and Methods
- Fig. S1. The expression of Arg1 and C/EBPβ during infection with BCG is dependent on MyD88.
- Fig. S2. Principal components analysis (PCA) of the Affymetrix transcript array.
- Fig. S3. C/EBPβ is partially required for the expression of Arg1 after stimulation with supernatant from BCG-infected cells.
- Fig. S4. BCG-induced expression of Arg1 is independent of the alternative activation of macrophages.
- Fig. S5. IL-6, IL-10, and G-CSF are produced by wild-type, but not Myd88–/–, macrophages after infection with BCG.
- Fig. S6. Expression of Arg1 is induced by recombinant IL-6, IL-10, and G-CSF.
- Fig. S7. The expression of Arg1 is intact in BMDMs from Il6–/– mice after infection with BCG.
