Table 1 Experiment 2: Cell numbers (mean ± SEM) and apoptotic cell ratios (mean ± SEM) of blastocysts in different treatment groups at 48 and 72 hours post exposure (hpe)

From: Susceptibility of in vitro produced hatched bovine blastocysts to infection with bluetongue virus serotype 8

Group and treatment Total cell number (mean ± SEM) Apoptotic cell ratio (mean ± SEM)

SOF (n = 6) 213.3 ± 23.12 14.5 ± 0.98a
MEM (n = 5) 312.8 ± 100.97 7.0 ± 0.64b
BTV 103.8 (n = 7) 107.1 ± 21.47 18.9 ± 1.43c

  1. Mock-exposed, control blastocysts (SOF and MEM) were incubated in BTV-8 free SOF culture medium and MEM medium respectively. Virus exposed blastocysts were exposed to two different titers of BTV-8 i.e. BTV 103.8 or BTV 104.9 TCID50 respectively.
  2. abc Values with different superscript within the same time point and column differ significantly.
