PVM-susceptibility gene distribution between parental strains.
LVLd7, day 7 pi lung viral load; ΔBWd0–d7, body weight loss as measured 7 days pi; ΔEBd6–d7, change in expiratory balance between days 6 and 7 pi. P1 and P2, mean value of PVM-resistant (SJL/J) and PVM-susceptible (129/Sv) strain, respectively. Testing according to Mather and Jinks (1982). See Materials & Methods section for key.
