Induction of T cell responses by ChAdOx1-GnGc and HAdV5-GnGc vaccines. Presented is a summary of the T cell response elicited by each vaccination regimen as measured by ELISpot assay on splenocytes (A; N = 6 mice per regimen) or intracellular cytokine staining of PBMCs (B to E; N = 14 mice per regimen) two weeks post-vaccination. The bars represent medians and error bars, the interquartile ranges. The Mann–Whitney U test is used for statistical comparisons between regimens. The pie charts in E represent the relative contribution of CD8+ T cells staining positive for one cytokine (yellow pie slices), two cytokines (green pie slices) or all three cytokines (red pie slices) to the responses shown in panels B to D. The raw frequencies of the different CD8+ T cell phenotypes are presented in Additional file 1: Figure S2. ** p <0.01, NS – not significant.
