Figure 6

Analysis of IgA expression on B cells. Cell suspensions isolated from BAL (A) and blood (B) 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 IgMIgA+ and IgM+IgA+ cells (depicted above each graph) among gated IgM+ and/or IgA+ B cells. 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.
