Abstract

We successfully cultured fibroblast cells and bone marrow-derived cells from White Leghorn and Fayoumi breed chickens. Treatment with a viral-mimic molecule demonstrated breed and cell-type specific differences in cell survival. Thus, we established a cell-based assay system that may be further explored as a substitute for challenging live animals with viruses to determine factors influencing their response. This could form a cost-effective and welfare-friendly method to determine viral responses.
