  1. Res. H2O2 and PIC indicate resistance to hydrogen peroxide and primary chicken intestinal epithelial cells, respectively. Microaerobic, anaerobic, and ambient oxygen incubation conditions are abbreviated as “Micro”, “Ana” and “O2” respectively, while adherence, invasion and intracellular survival are abbreviated as “Adh”, “Inv” and “Intra”. Statistically significant increases or decreases (P < 0.05) as compared to the wildtype are indicated by ↑ and ↓, respectively, while NS indicates no significant differences.
