mDCs and pDCs secrete α-defensins 1-3: E2 and PG effect. Levels of α-defensins 1-3 measured by ELISA in: (A) mDCs treated for 24 h with 10, 1 and 0.1 ug/ml of E2 (left panel) or PG (right panel). (B) pDCs treated with 10 ug/ml of E2 for 8 h. Data are presented as mean plus or minus SD from 3 independent experiments.*P < 0.05 versus Mock treated DCs.
