Effects of M. pneumoniae and other antigens on IL-10 production in murine lymphocytes. IL-10 concentration (pg/ml) in the culture supernatant of murine lymphocytes stimulated with antigens of M. pneumoniae strain M129 (a), S. pneumoniae strain ATCC 33400 (b), K. pneumoniae strain ATCC 13883 (c), LPS from E. coli O127:B8, (d), Zymosan A from S. cerevisiae(e). *p < 0.05 vs. TGF-β1 and IL-6 (+), Ag (−) by Dunnett multiple comparison statistical test; #p < 0.05 vs. cytokine (−), Ag (−) by Student’s t-test.
