Effect of SEB on the lymphocyte proliferation of adult offspring rats. Three days after the splenocytes of adult offspring rats in the PBS and SEB groups were in vitro co-cultured in RPMI medium with either SEB (named as PBS + SEB, SEB + SEB) or ConA (named as PBS + ConA, SEB + ConA), the proliferation was measured by 3H-thymidine incorporation in the splenic lymphocytes of adult female (a) and male (b) offspring rats. Data are expressed as mean ± SE and the measure unit of [3H] thymidine incorporation is counts per min (CPM). The results are representative of 10 independent cultures with each condition in triplicate [Twenty adult offspring rats (half male and half female) was used in each group]. Compared with PBS + ConA: # P < 0.05; Compared with SEB + ConA: * P < 0.05
