Cotton Rats and House Sparrows as Hosts for North and South American Strains of Eastern Equine Encephalitis Virus
Figure 1. Mean viremia (A–C) and neutralizing antibody response (D–F) profiles in juvenile cotton rats (A, D), mature cotton rats (B, E), and house sparrows (C, F) after subcutaneous inoculation with 3–4 log10 PFU of North American eastern equine encephalitis virus (EEEV) strain FL93 (red lines), South American (SA) EEEV strain PE70 (blue lines), or SA EEEV strain CO92 (green lines). Note the difference in scale of the x-axis for the antibody response of juvenile rats. NAb, neutralizing antibody. Error bars represent SEM.
