Animal characteristics. Body weight (A), GAS weight (B) and ratio of GAS weight on body weight (BW) (C) of mice 8 hours after administration of LPS 7.5 mg/kg with or without epoxomicin 0.5 mg/kg treatment. Weight of GAS was measured in left and right muscles of control (C), LPS (L) and LPS + epoxomicin (L + E) treated animals. Values are means ± SEM. Panel A: *** p < 0.001, PRE vs. POST; Panel C: * p < 0.05, compared with C.
