Figure 7

Heat map of up- and down-regulated genes related to innate defense, selected from MFG transcriptome analysis of the IMI time course challenge with S. aureus . Gene expression was assessed using qPCR; genes shown in red are up-regulated and those shown in green are down-regulated in MFG infected at 12 hpi and 18 hpi, relative to MFG from the uninfected half-udder. Data are expressed in log10 ratios with respect to the reference genes (RPS24 and PPIA), at each time point and represent the five biological replicates at each time point.
