Frequencies and absolute numbers of various immune cell subsets in E. coli infected and control animals. Dots in scatter plots represent values of individual animals, red lines represent median value within group. Experimental groups are illustrated on the x-axes: 1 control group (n = 3), 2 E. coli O104:H4-infected group (n = 6), 3 E. coli O157:H7-infected group [n = 3 (PBMC), n = 4 (Ln)]. a Absolute number of leukocytes and leukocyte subpopulations obtained by differential counts in white blood cells from day 4 to 6 post infection. bm Absolute number of lymphocyte subpopulations and myeloid cells in blood from day 4 to 6 post infection and percentage of lymphocyte subpopulations within live lymphocytes in lymph node (Ln) on the day of slaughter. b Total T cells (CD3+ phenotype). c Total B cells (CD79α+ phenotype). d Myeloid cells (CD172α+ phenotype). e Total NK cells (CD3CD8α+ phenotype). f NKp46 NK cells (CD3CD8α+NKp46 phenotype). g NKp46+ NK cells (CD3CD8α+NKp46+ phenotype). h CD4+ T cells (CD3+CD4+ phenotype). i Cytolytic T cells (CD3+CD4CD8α+ phenotype). [j Total γδ T cells (TCR-γδ+ phenotype]. j CD2+ γδ T cells (CD2+TCR-γδ+ phenotype). k CD2 γδ T cells (CD2TCR-γδ+ phenotype). l CD2+CD8α+CD27+ γδ T cells (CD2+CD8α+CD27+TCR-γδ+ phenotype)
