• Characterisation and comparison of immune response mechanisms in an indigenous and a commercial pig breed after classical swine fever vaccination

    26 days ago - By Animal Genetics

    Summary
    The live attenuated classical swine fever vaccine has been successfully used to prevent and control CSF outbreaks for 6 decades. However, the immune response mechanisms against the vaccine remain poorly understood. Moreover, very few reports exist regarding the breed differences in the response to CSF vaccine. In this study, we generated the peripheral blood mononuclear cell transcriptomes of indigenous Ghurrah and commercial Landrace pig breeds, before and 7 days after CSF vaccination. Subsequently, between and within-breed differential gene expression analyses were carried out...
