aPeripheral immune organs were obtained as described in FIGURE 5. The results are expressed as mean values ± SE of (a) percentages of gated CD45+ cells or (b) number of cells (blood ×103/µl; organ ×106 for CD8+ T cells and B cells and ×103 for CD138+ plasma cells). Results are for whole spleen, lymph nodes - three mesenteric lymph nodes, and 1 ml of blood.
cSignificant difference (p<0.001) between BTBR and C57BL/6J; normality passed.
dSignificant difference (p<0.002) between BTBR and C57BL/6J by Mann-Whitney test.
