Tracheal antimicrobial peptides (TAP) are expressed primarily in respiratory epithelial cells of cattle. The TAP expression is inducible upon challenge with bacteria and bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS). In pigs, a promoter that can be activated by bacterial infection has yet to be identified. The objective of this study was to use green fluorescent… CONTINUE READING
