Table 2 Expression of cathelicidin genes 1-7 in 5 Holstein Friesian cows with high somatic cell count (SCC)

From: Characterisation and expression profile of the bovine cathelicidin gene repertoire in mammary tissue

Sample SCC (cells/ml of milk) CATHL1 CATHL2 CATHL3 CATHL4 CATHL5 CATHL6 CATHL7
Animal 1 2,249,000 + - - - + - -
Animal 2 1,324,000 + + + - + + +
Animal 3 174,000 + + + - + + +
Animal 4 711,000 - - - + + - -
Animal 5 4,149,000 + + + + - - +
  1. PCR was carried out to detect expression of cathelicidin 1-7 genes in somatic cells isolated from milk samples from cows with a high somatic cell count. - denotes no detectable gene expression, + indicates gene expression was detected.
