25OHD (ng/ml) 19.76 ± 1.87a 17.37 ± 2.68b 76.30 ± 3.15 86.76 ± 4.03

  1. At the age of 8 weeks, C57Bl/6J vitamin D deficient and control mice were exposed to CS or ambient air for a period of 6 or 12 weeks. Data show results after 12 weeks and are represented as mean ± SEM.a p < 0.0001 vs air-exposed control;b p < 0.0001 vs CS-exposed control
