Table 2 Fold increase in expression of immune genes

From: Low virulent infectious salmon anaemia virus (ISAV) replicates and initiates the immune response earlier than a highly virulent virus in Atlantic salmon gills

  1. Fold increase from 6 h to the maximum peak of immune gene expression (on any given day) post-infection (pi) for fish infected with ISAV of either low (LVI) or high (HVI) virulence, or cell culture media to serve as negative controls. Figures in bold indicate the highest fold-induction for each gene in each organ.
