Figure 8

Aged mice clear lytic virus from their lungs following de novo γHV68 infection with only slightly delayed kinetics. The titers of lytic virus in the lungs of individual young (3 months old, closed symbols) and aged (19-24 months old, open symbols) C57BL/6 mice at the indicated days following de novo intranasal γHV68 infection (400 PFU) were measured using a standard plaque assay. The dotted line indicates the plaque assay's limit of detection.
