Statistically significant (P < 0.05) effects of maternal smoke exposure on a circulating hormones, b immunohistochemistry scoring proportions, and c key thyroid transcripts. Shaded areas in a and c represent 95% confidence intervals. Immunohistochemistry scores in b are shown as stacked percentages for each scoring (“−, unstained” < “(+)” < “+” < “++, more stained”) across gestation. Arrowheads indicate significant (P < 0.05) increase (▲) or decrease () by gestational age. P values associated with changes in relation to smoke exposure are provided in the merged graph panels
