mRNA expression of SP-A, SP-B and SP-C. a: Analysis of SP-A expression in the fetal and neonatal rat lung tissues showed significant mRNA down-regulation at E19, E21and P1, P3, P14 in intrauterine infection group, relative to control. b: Significant decreases in SP-B (at E19, E21 and P1, P3) mRNA expression were identified in intrauterine infection group compared to the control group. c: qRT-PCR analysis for the fetal and neonatal rats lung tissues showed significantly decreased expression of SP-C at E17, E19, E21and P1, P7 in intrauterine infection group, relative to control. The mRNA quantitation was calculated by using the ΔCt method and higher ΔCt means lower expression levels. *P < 0.05; **P < 0.01, vs. control group
