Table 3 Plasma concentrations of PAG measured by using AS#860 in non-pregnant and pregnant buffalo cows

From: Purification of pregnancy-associated glycoproteins from late-pregnancy Bubalus bubalisplacentas and development of a radioimmunoassay for pregnancy diagnosis in water buffalo females

Day after AI   Concentrations of PAG (ng/mL)
   Non-pregnant (n = 26) Pregnant (n = 33)
Day 0 Mean PAG (ng/mL) 0.48 ± 0.04 0.41 ± 0.04a
  [min–max] [0-1.0] [0-0.8]
Day 30 Mean PAG (ng/mL) 0.46 ± 0.06* 2.86 ± 0.39a,b,*
  [min–max] [0-1.0] [0.85-11.37]
Day 37 Mean PAG (ng/mL) 0.27 ± 0.05** 11.60 ± 1.61b,**
  [min–max] [0-0.8] [3.12-49.00]
  1. PAG concentrations are expressed as mean ± SEM.
  2. AI: artificial insemination.
  3. Values with similar superscripts in the same column are statistically different (aP < 0.01; bP < 0.05).
  4. Significant differences between PAG concentrations from pregnant and non-pregnant females are indicated by asterisks (*P < 0.05; **P < 0.0001).
