TWE induces an increase in maturation and production of anti-inflammatory cytokine but does not alter pro-inflammatory cytokine production by DCs. a Either TWE or vehicle was supplemented in the drinking water of B6 mice for 5 days (approximately 2 mg TWE/day). Subsequently, the surface expressions of MHC II and CD86 molecules on the DCs from the spleen and MLN were assessed by flow cytometry. The graphs represent the mean fluorescence intensities (MFI). The mean values ± SD (n = 5, * P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01) are shown. b Either TWE or vehicle was supplemented in the drinking water of B6 mice. After 5 days of TWE ingestion, the frequencies of IL12p40, IL6, TNFα, or IL10-producing DCs of the spleen and MLN were assessed by flow cytometry. The mean values ± SD (n = 5, * P < 0.05) are shown
