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.
