Effects of pre-gestational stress on CRH and COR levels of maternal rats and offspring rats. Serum CRH (A) and COR (B) levels of maternal rats (control group, n = 8; CUS group, n = 12) and offspring rats from different groups (female offspring in the control group, n = 24; male offspring in the control group, n = 24; female offspring in the CUS group, n = 30; male offspring in the CUS group, n = 30) are shown. Data are the mean ± S.E. ** indicates P < 0.01 when maternal rats in the CUS group were compared with the control group and offspring rats in the CUS group were compared with the offspring in the control group of the same sex. △△indicates P < 0.01, when female offspring rats were compared with male offspring rats of the same treatment.
