Oviductal epithelial cells (OPEC) were co-incubated in the presence of (i) bacteria (1 x 10˄8 bacteria), (ii) sperm (1 X 10 ˄ 6 spermatozoa/ml) or (iii) red blood cell (5 x 10 ˄ 6 red blood cell/ml) for 24 hours in HAM-12 media. Three biological replicates were performed for each group and a total of 12 Affymetrix Porcine arrays were used to identify the expression profiles of OPEC alone (3 arrays) or in the presence of (i) bacteria (3 arrays), (ii) sperm (3 arrays) or (iii) red blood cells (3 arrays).
