Selectivity of MEC capture by Microdissection from infected mammary tissue, assessed by real-time qPCR. A) Section of infected mammary tissue with the zone selected for laser capture microdissection (pink). B) Relative expression (± SEM) of specific marker for MEC (CSN3, green bar) and for putative contaminating myoepithelial cells (Krt14, red bar), macrophages and neutrophils (CD18, orange bar) and lymphocytes (CD3e, yellow bar) in infected mammary gland (left) and in microdissected infected MEC (right), at 30 hpi. *Significance is relative to fold change in expression of infected MG (adjusted p-value < 0.05).
