  1. a Total thymocytes from day 1–8 newborn or adult mice were stained with CD4, CD8, CD25 and anti-FoxP3 antibody and analyzed by FACS. Data is a summary of three independent analyses. b: Average cell number +/- standard deviations (SD). c: % CD25+ of CD4+CD8- thymocytes. d: % FoxP3+ of CD4+CD25+CD8- thymocytes.
