Effects of antiserum against rUBE2F during E. acervulina challenge on different parameters.
|Groups||Average body weight gains (g)||Mean lesion scores||Oocyst output (Ig)|
|Unchallenged control||90.46 ± 7.97A||0.00 ± 0.00A||–A|
|Anti-pET32a protein control||19.36 ± 3.96C||2.35 ± 0.93C||6.30 ± 0.23B|
|Negative serum control||21.43 ± 4.33C||2.31 ± 0.81C||6.30 ± 0.33B|
|Anti-rUBE2F||39.40 ± 11.86B||1.37 ± 0.83B||6.13 ± 0.24B|
|Challenged control||18.21 ± 9.29C||2.74 ± 0.93C||6.28 ± 0.35B|
Significant difference (p < 0.01) between means and ranks with different letters, and no significant difference (p > 0.05) between means and ranks with the same letter; the oocyst output was zero (designated as “–”) in the unchallenged control group.
