Modulation of BMDCs maturation elicited by r Cs RNASET2. (A) Days-7 BMDCs (2 × 106/ml) were stimulated with or without 0.5 μg/ml rCs RNASET2, 0.5 μg/ml rCs FABP or 40 μg/ml ESPs in the presence of 1 μg/ml LPS for 24 h. The levels of CD11c, CD40, CD80 and CD86 on BMDCs were detected by flow cytometry. Values stand for the percentage of treated cells staining positive for the indicated marker. Histograms are representative of seven independent experiments. (B) Statistical results of the expression of surface markers on BMDCs. Data are expressed as mean ± SD. Statistical significance was analyzed by the Mann–Whitney test (*p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ns: not significant).
