Comparison of Host Gene Expression Profiles in Spleen Tissues of Genetically Susceptible and Resistant Mice during ECTV Infection
(a) Spleen sections of the indicated mice at 10 dpi stained with H&E at 10 dpi. (b) The number of BALB/c and C57BL/6 mice exhibiting disease symptoms after ECTV infection. Five mice in each group were injected with 104 TCID50 of ECTV into the abdominal subcutaneous tissue. The status of infected mice was checked daily. (c) ECTV titers in spleen tissues of susceptible and resistant mice. Groups of BALB/c and C57BL/6 mice infected with ECTV were killed on the days indicated (3, 7, and 10 dpi). Viral titers in pooled spleen of each group were determined with three replications. means .
