Identification of immunologically relevant genes in mare and foal dendritic cells responding to infection by Rhodococcus equi.

Abstract

Rhodococcus equi is a facultative intracellular bacterial pathogen of horses; infected foals develop pyogranulomatous pneumonia, however adult horses are largely unaffected. R. equi infects and proliferates within host macrophages and dendritic cells (DCs). DCs initiate the appropriate adaptive immune response, thereby playing a critical role in determining… (More)
