TQ restores plasma cytokine levels in the offspring of diabetic dams. The levels of plasma cytokines were measured in freshly isolated blood from offspring (8 weeks old) born to CD (black bars), DD (gray bars), and DD + TQ (hatched bars) as described in the Materials and Methods section. The accumulated data from 10 individual male mice from each group are expressed as the mean level of each cytokine (pg/ml) ± SEM. *P < 0.05 for diabetic vs. control; #P < 0.05 for diabetic + TQ vs. diabetic; +P < 0.05 for diabetic + TQ vs. control.
