Lipid mediator analyses of peritoneal fluids: wild type vs. fat-1 mice.
Peritoneal exudates of mice developing endometriotic lesions were collected by washing with saline. The peritoneal fluids obtained from the fat-1 (white) or wild type (WT: black) mice were analyzed as shown in the Fig. 3 (n = 3 in each group). The main products of AA-, EPA- and DHA-derived mediators are indicated. Y axis donates the amount of each lipid mediator (pg/g sample). Mean values with standard deviations are presented. Asterisks indicate those comparisons (fat-1 vs. wild type mice) with statistical significance (p<0.05).
