Table 1 Average Salmonella and TMEV titers (+/- SE) for female P0, F1 and F2 mice.

From: Infection-dependent phenotypes in MHC-congenic mice are not due to MHC: can we trust congenic animals?

Generation Sample Size MHC Genotype Salmonella titers (102 CFU/spleen) TMEV titers (102 PFU/spcd)
P0 6 b/b 51.93 +/- 6.60 1.33 +/- 1.09

  1. spcd = spinal cord; Comparisons in bold are significantly different as follows: a (F(1,35) = 7.127, p = 0.01); b (F(1,33) = 5.84, p = 0.02); c marginally significant (F(1,33) = 3.02, p = 0.09).
