Gene expression of cytokines in bovine monocytes/macrophages infected by 6 strains of U. diversum representing different clones and singleton STs: BA78 (CC1), GOTA (CC2), 198 (CC3), ATCC 49782 (CC4), 805 (ST13) and S8 (ST18). a TNF expression; b IL-1 expression; c IL-6 expression; d IL-17 expression; e IL-10 expression. Groups were compared using the Kruskal-Wallis non-parametric test followed by the Dunn post-test, statistical significance P < .05. PBS was used as negative control (NC) and LPS was used as positive control. *Difference with the group NC; **difference with the group LPS; ++ difference with the group BA78; # difference with the group 805
