CD4 promoter methylation levels at 5 (A), 10 (B) and 21dpi (C). Pyrosequencing result of the promoter methylation level of CD4 gene before and after MDV infection at different time points. A decrease of promoter methylation level was observed only L72 chickens. 5dpi: 5 days post infection; 10dpi: 10 days post infection; 21dpi: 21 days post infection. L63.Non: noninfected control of L63 chicken; L63.Inf: infected L63 chicken; L72.Non: noninfected control of L63 chicken; L63.Inf: infected L63 chicken. n=4 for each line.
