Figure S1. Maternal serum cytokine concentrations (pg/mL) 3 to 72 hours following treatment with saline or LPS. Bars: maternal LPS treatment; white: saline control; dark: 10 μg/kg; light: 50 μg/kg; hatched: 150 μg/kg. All values represent means ± SEM. *P ≤ 0.05 compared with control (n = 5 to 7 mothers per treatment). The multiplex assay allowed us to detect and quantify the full concentration range of every cytokine at every time point examined, except for G-CSF, KC and IL-6 at three hours postinjection. The data presented here for G-CSF, KC and IL-6 at three hours postinjection are underrepresentative of actual concentrations, particularly for the LPS-treated groups (indicated by ! on graphs).
