a Total protein levels in CVM from 16 cows at first two weeks postpartum were measured using BCA assay and compared between our modified protocol and the standard protocol (with DTT). b, c IL-6 and IL-8 levels were measured by ELISA and results were presented according to the volume of mucus analyzed. d, e taking in consideration the amount of total protein (TP) in CVM, IL-6 and IL-8 levels were presented per mg of total protein in the mucus. Results are presented as mean ± SEM and analyzed by t test. Significant differences between groups are calculated. ***P < 0.001, **P < 0.01 and *P < 0.05
