Local and systemic immune response of the bovine udder 24 h after infection. A graphical representation of a robust response to infection as detected by a series of microarray experiments was adapted from . Genes that were differentially expressed in the bovine udder upon E. coli infection are listed, further differentiating between systemic reactions in blue and local reactions in red. Bold letters indicate accordance with . Genes were up-regulated unless marked with an arrow, indicating that expression is repressed upon infection.
