  • a  C. neoformans-containing BMM were intratracheally injected into mice and collected 24 h later for nonlytic exocytosis measurements by flow cytometry. Results from two independent experiments performed on different days were pooled.

  • b  P values were calculated using the chi-square test with Yates correction.
