  • Mann–Whitney, nonparametric t test was used for comparison between 2 groups. Symbols represent significant results. F-H indicates female offspring born to hypercholesterolemic mothers; F-N, female offspring born to normocholesterolemic mothers; M-H, male offspring born to hypercholesterolemic mothers; and M-N, male offspring born to normocholesterolemic mothers.

  • * Used for comparison between offspring born to normocholesterolemic vs hypercholesterolemic mothers.

  • Used for comparison between male and female. Data were presented as median and quartile±SD. Statistical significance was set at P<0.05.
