  1. aValues with different letters are significantly different (P < 0.05). Data were analyzed by Fisher’s exact test followed by post hoc Holm test.
  2. bValues with different letters are significantly different (P < 0.05). Data were analyzed by one-way ANOVA followed by Tukey-Kramer post-hoc test for multiple comparisons.
