Humoral and cell-mediated immunities and phagocytic ability were examined at the third and fourth generations of selection in two pairs of chicken lines (at 10 wk of age) that were divergently selected for levels of high serum Ig M (HIM), low serum Ig M (LIM), high serum Ig G (HIG), and low serum Ig G (LIG). Cell-mediated immunity was examined by splenomegaly assay at 12 wk of age. At 20 and 23 wk of age, 20 birds from the respective lines were injected Brucella abortus (BA), and blood samples… CONTINUE READING
