Immunohistochemical staining for NLRP3. A Representative photographs of immunohistochemical staining for NLRP3 in the fetal and neonatal rat lung. The brownish areas indicate where NLRP3 is expressed (× 200). a: intrauterine infection group at E19; b: Control at E19; c: intrauterine infection group at P14; d: Control at P14. B Staining scores of NLRP3 in the lung tissue. Comparing intrauterine infection group with control, NLRP3 expression of lung tissue was significantly increased in the fetal rats at E17, E19, E21 and the neonatal rats at P1, P3, P14. *P < 0.05; **P < 0.01, vs. control group
