Distinct distribution of CD11c expression on CTLs of BALB/c and C57BL/6 mice. Both BALB/c and C57BL/6 mice were inoculated intraperitoneally with 5 × 103 PFU of MCMV Smith strain. DMEM was injected into the (uninfected) control groups following the same study design. Lung, spleen and peripheral blood samples were harvested from each mouse and analyzed at 7 days post infection (dpi). a The percentages of CD8+ T cells in lungs of control and MCMV groups are shown. Total CTLs of each group are shown first, and then CD11c and CD11cintCTLs are shown separately (n = 4 mice/group, results are representative of two independent experiments). * P < 0.05. b. The percentages of CD11c and CD11cint CTLs in spleen and peripheral blood of control and MCMV groups are shown (n = 4 mice/group, results are representative of two independent experiments). * P < 0.05. c Lung CD8+ T cells of each group are shown by histogram, based on their CD11c expression. d Spleen and blood CD8+ T cells of each group are shown by histogram, based on their CD11c expression. The proportions of CD11c and CD11cint T cells in each group are shown in the table above the histogram
