Table 1 Summary of results for iNOS expression and NO production for fetal membrane disks cultured in the absence or presence of serum

From: Lipopolysaccharide induces nitric oxide synthase expression and platelet-activating factor increases nitric oxide production in human fetal membranes in culture

  Serum Free With Serum
  LPS PAF LPS PAF
iNOS expression Induction (n = 4) No induction (n = 5) N/A* N/A*
NO production No increase (n = 4) No increase (n = 5) N/A* Increase (n = 3)
  1. * These experiments were not performed as culturing with serum was found to induce iNOS and LPS was able to induce iNOS in the absence of serum
