Abstract

Two related advanced intercross lines were analyzed for association of Gallinacin genotypic variation with Salmonella enteritidis (SE) burden levels in the spleen and cecum. Four Gallinacin genes were associated with bacterial load in the cecal content (GAL3, GAL11, GAL12, and GAL13) and one gene with SE bacterial burden in the spleen (GAL5). These results strongly support a role of the Gallinacins as defense molecules against enteric pathogens.
