Total intensity and amount (μg) of interferon tau (IFNT) produced and secreted by ovine conceptus on d 16 of pregnancy and total amount (nmol) of glucose in uterine lumen. In vivo knockdown of ODC1 (n = 5), ADC (n = 7) and their combination phenotype (a) (n = 2) did not present significantly different (P > 0.05) in a and b), IFNT intensity per 10 μg of protein and in (c), total amount (μg) of IFNT compared with MAO control (n = 6). However the intensity and amount of IFNT from MAO-ODC1: ADC (b) (n = 4) was significantly (P < 0.05) less compared with MAO control. In vivo knockdown of ODC1, ADC, and ODC1:ADC (a) and (b) had not significant (P > 0.05) effects on (d), total glucose uterine flushes. Significant effects are indicate by different superscript letters (P < 0.05). Data are presented as mean and SEM
