Data for: Survival capacity of the common woodlouse Armadillidium vulgare is improved with a second infection of Salmonella enterica
Our study aimed to investigate the protective effect confered by immune priming in A. vulgare against S. enterica by determining its setting up and duration. We also analysed haemocyte variations in order to linked them with a potential protection against the bacterial infection. For these purposes, we conducted two distinct experiments with several independant experimental replicates: The first consisted to primed (i.e "vaccinated") individuals either with a low dose of living S. enterica bacteria, with LB broth or without injection (control). 1 day , 7 days or 15 days later, we sampled haemolymph of individuals and examined haemocyte concentrations and viabilities. Data of these experiments are available in the file "Prigot_DataHaemocytes" in the open access repository Mendeley Data. The second experiment was based on the same priming treatment than in the first (with low dose of living bacteria, LB broth or nothing). But 1 day, 7 days or 15 days later, we injected a LD50 of bacteria in all individuals and monitored their survival rates for 7 days. Datas of these experiments are available in the file "Prigot_DataSurvivals" in the open access repository Mendeley Data. Differents animals were use for the two experiments. You can also find enclosed a .txt file (Prigot_DataLegends) giving all legends of the datasets colomn heads. Datasets are ready to be used in R program for statistical analysis, see enclosed the R-script file. For any problems in the dataset comprehension, do not hesitate to contact us.
