Fig. 2

Effects of dexamethasone on bile acid levels in rat fetal serum, maternal serum, and placenta. Total bile acid (TBA) levels of male and female fetal serum (a), maternal serum (b), and placenta (c) were measured by TBA test kits according to the manufacturer’s protocol. Data are presented as mean ± SD, n = 11 litters and placentas from 11 pregnant rats in each group. *P < 0.05 vs. control. **P < 0.01 vs. control. PDE, 0.2 mg kg−1 day−1 dexamethasone
