Abstract

Heterophils were collected from chickens from genetically diverse lines and gene expression in response to in vitro stimulation with Salmonella enteritidis (SE) was measured for cells from each line. Heterophils are cells important in the initial detection of and mounting of an immune response to pathogens. Understanding the response of heterophils to stimulation with SE and how this response is different for diverse genetic lines may allow selection for increased resistance to this bacterial pathogen.
