IDO ablation in HSC-derived leukocytes alleviates JE via enhancement of the IFN-I innate response. BM cells from WT or IDO KO mice were grafted to lethally irradiated WT or IDO KO recipient mice, which were then infected with JEV (3.0 × 107 PFU). a Susceptibility of IDO KO BM chimeric models to JE. Infected recipient mice (n = 12) were examined over 18 days to determine the survival rate. b Changes in body weight. Data are expressed as the average percentage of body weight relative to the time of challenge. c Systemic IFN-β levels in an IDO KO BM chimera. The amount of serum IFN-β was determined by ELISA at the indicated time points. *p < 0.05; **p < 0.01 compared with levels in WT-WT BM chimera 48 h pi. #p < 0.05; ##p < 0.01 compared with levels in WT-WT BM chimera 72 h pi
