mRNA expression of VEGF and Collagen I. qRT-PCR analysis for the fetal and neonatal rats lung tissues showed significantly decreased expression of VEGF at E19, E21and P1, P3, P7 in intrauterine infection group, relative to control a. Analysis of Collagen I expression in the fetal and neonatal rat lung tissues showed significant mRNA up-regulation at E19, E21 and P1, P3, P7, P14 in intrauterine infection group, relative to control b. 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
