Figure 7: Nitric oxide (NOx) levels of the whole blood of offspring mice treated with cinnabar. Experimental mice were orally gavaged with cinnabar (10 mg/kg/day) as described in Figure 1. Whole blood samples were acquired, de-proteinized, and NOx levels were determined as described in Materials and Methods. All data are presented as mean SE ( 12–15/group). * as compared with compared with F1-C-V group; & as compared with F1- or F2-Cin-V group; # as compared with F1-C-Cin group, respectively.
