A/J embryo implantation in C57BL/6 mothers resulted in experimental allergic airway inflammation similar to C57BL/6 offspring. a Schematic representation of the embryo transfer and OVA-inducing airway inflammation protocol. b Phylogenetic diversity in mice. Error bars represent the standard error, and differences between the means were assessed using the Wilcoxon rank-sum test. c Microbial community variance (R2) explained by variables. All values were calculated using Adonis with 999 permutations on unweighted UniFrac distances. d Total and differential (Eos, eosinophils; Neut, neutrophils; Mono, mononuclear) number of cells in the bronchoalveolar lavage (BALF) of the A/J, C57BL/6, and A/J transplanted OVA groups (n = 3–5). e Levels of (pg/ml) of interleukin (IL)-4 and interferon (INF)-γ in the BALF of the A/J, C57BL/6, and A/J transplanted OVA groups (n = 3–5). The results are shown as mean ± SEM. ANOVA test (with Tukey post-test) was used. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ****p < 0.0001
