Regulation of cytokine secretion by rHCcyst-3. Goat monocytes were stimulated with LPS (100 ng/ml) for 72 h in the presence or absence of rHCcyst-3 and his-tagged protein. The cells treated with rHCcyst-3 alone as another control. Cytokine secretion in the supernatant of cell cultures was quantified by ELISA. a IL-1β. b IL-10. c IL-12p40. d TGF-β1. e TNF-α. The data are representative of three independent experiments (*P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001)
