Bacterial load in infected SHK-1 cells. Bacterial load profiles of infected SHK-1 cells with (SHK-1 + P. sal + DFO) and without DFO (SHK-1 + P. sal) were evaluated by gene expression profiling of 16S rRNA gene of P. salmonis using RT-qPCR TaqMan® as described previously [1]. The profiles were shown as the abundance of rRNA at 4- and 7-days post infection (dpi) and effectively represent the result of bacterial number and transcriptional activity. Each time point was expressed as log10 and represents the mean ± SD from three independent experiments. The asterisks (**) indicate significant difference (t-test, P < 0.05)
