To identify quantitative trait loci (QTLs) with effects on 'stress' induced alterations of porcine immune functions, a number of immune capacity traits were analysed in the F2 generation of a Wild Boar--Yorkshire intercross. All traits were measured prior, and one day after, exposure to experimental 'stress' (mixing and transport). The 'stress' protocol induced a decrease in numbers of circulating neutrophils and in spontaneous proliferation in vitro, whereas phagocytic capacity, mitogen… CONTINUE READING
