Description

Infectious Bronchitis Virus (IBV) is an economically important pathogen in the poultry industry. The IBV-specific immune response is initiated in the host by activating pathogen associated molecular pattern (PAMP) receptors during virus infection. We hypothesize that PAMP receptors are important in the control of IBV in chickens.
