## Figure 2.
Changes in survival rate and apoptotic rate of swine alveolar macrophages (AMs). Changes in (A) survival rate and (B) apoptotic rate in PCV2- and/or PRRSV-inoculated swine alveolar macrophages (AMs)
were determined by trypan blue dye exclusion assay and TUNEL assay, respectively.
Data are expressed as the level different from that of the mock-inoculated AMs (Mock)
and shown as mean ± SD of three independent experiments. PCV2: AMs inoculated with
PCV2 alone; PRRSV: AMs inoculated with PRRSV alone; PCV2/PRRSV: AMs inoculated with
PCV2 first then inoculated with PRRSV 18 h later; PRRSV/PCV2: AMs inoculated with
PRRSV first then inoculated with PCV2 18 h later; PCV2-PRRSV: AMs co-inoculated with
PCV2 and PRRSV simultaneously. ** ^{(P < 0.01),} *** ^{(P < 0.001)}The difference between the two treatment groups at the same h post inoculation (HPI)
with the first virus is statistically significant. ^{a}Values are significantly different from the Mock at the same h post inoculation (HPI)
with the first virus.
