Table 3 Gross pathology and re-isolation rates ofG. anatisfrom different organs following experimental infection with a wild-type strain (G. anatis12656-12) (4 chickens) or its isogenicgtxAdeletion mutant (ΔgtxA) (16 chickens)

From: GtxA is a virulence factor that promotes a Th2-like response during Gallibacterium anatis infection in laying hens
