Percentages of monocytes in the bone marrow and peripheral blood mononuclear cells. The percentages of Ly6C + cells in BM (A), F4/80+ (B) and F4/80 + Ly6C + cells (C) in the PBMCs were determined by flow cytometry in cells isolated from mice fed on a low protein (MN, n =4) or normal (control, n =4) diet for 16 days. Data show the results of one representative experiment out of three independent experiments. *: p <0.05. Results are expressed as mean with 95% CI.
