Analysis of lymphoid cells and their subpopulations for expression of MHC-II. Cell suspension isolated from BAL (first column), TBLN (second column), MLN (third column) and the blood (fourth column) of control GF piglets and GF piglets infected with PRRSV, SIV or PCV2 (different animal groups depicted on x-axes) were analyzed by flow cytometry for the proportion of MHC-II positive cells among selected subpopulations of T cells. Analysis included CD4CD8αhi CTL (A-D), naive CD4+CD8α Th cells (E-H), effector/memory CD4+CD8α+ Th cells (I-L) and all γδ T cells (M-P). Each dot in the graphs represents an individual animal and the mean for all animals in the same group is indicated by a horizontal line. Groups of animals that show a statistically significant difference (p < 0.05) from GF animals are light-grey boxed and those differing even within a group are dark-grey boxed.
