Eosinophil deficiency decreased Af-induced production of Th2 cytokines and mucin hyperproduction. ac The protein levels of IL-4 (a), IL-5 (b), and IL-13 (c) in BALF quantified by ELISAs. df The mRNA expressions of IL-4 (d), IL-5 (e), and IL-13 (f) quantified by quantitative PCR. g Periodic acid Schiff staining showing mucus production (magnification, 200×). h mRNA level of lung mucin 5AC (Muc5AC). Data are mean ± SEM. (n = 4–6). Values for qPCR were normalized to β-actin. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001, and ns = no significance
