Effect of mango mistletoe Dendrophthoe pentandra (MMDP) extract on Foxp3 protein in CD4+ CD25+ T cells and Th17 cells. The effect of MMDP extract on the regulatory T cell (Treg) population and Th17 cells in mice with trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS)-induced colitis is shown. a. Mesenteric lymph node (MLN) cells were isolated from each group and subjected to intracellular interleukin IL-17 staining. b. The percentage of Treg (CD4+ CD25+ Foxp3+) and Th17 (CD4+ IL-17+) cells were analyzed using a FACS Calibur flow cytometer (BD Biosciences). Numbers represent the percentages of IL-17 expressing CD4+ T cells and Foxp3-expressing CD4+ CD25+ T cells in each quadrant are shown. Percentages of cells in each quadrant are shown inside the panels. Representative results of six mice in each group are shown
