rHCcyst-3 inhibits MHC-II expression on goat monocytes. Monocytes were cultured in the presence of control buffer (PBS/DTT) or different concentrations of rHCcyst-3 and his-tagged protein for 24 h. The cells treated by LPS as the positive control. MHC-II expression was measured by flow cytometric analysis and calculated as the percentage of mean fluorescence intensity (MFI) of controls. Bars represent the MFI ± SD of controls. a MHC-I. b MHC-II. The data are representative of three independent experiments (*P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001)
