Effect of healthy or infected HSPCs on survival and bacterial burden in infected ayu.

(A) Survival in ayu treated with healthy (1 × 104 R3 cells) or L. anguillarum LPS HSPCs (1 × 105 R3 cells). Fish were monitored for mortality every 12 h for 4 days. Experiments are representative of 30 fish per group. (B) The effect of healthy or LPS HSPCs on bacterial clearance in the ayu head kidney (B), blood (C), spleen (D) and liver (E) 24 h post-L. anguillarum infection. Tissue and blood homogenates were cultured on TCBS agar plates. Colony numbers were normalised to tissue weight (for tissue) and volume (for blood). n = 5 in each group; **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001.
