  • The cNK cells in the liver were derived from the mice at 5 d after the injection with control vector (5 μg). The IL4-NK cells in the liver were derived from the mice at 5 d after the injection with pLIVE-IL-4 vector (5 μg). The numbers indicated MFI ± SEM of at least three separate experiments. *P < 0.05; **P < 0.01; ***P < 0.001.
