Macrophages, from susceptible S- and resistant K-strain White Leghorn chickens, were studied in vitro to determine their contribution to the dynamics of Marek's disease (MD) and possible role in genetic resistance to this disease. In relation to basic macrophage properties (morphology, cell spreading, enzyme levels, pinocytosis, and phagocytosis) there were no significant differences between S- and K-strain macrophages. Both macrophage strains were observed to respond to JM virus by phagocytic… CONTINUE READING
