Diuron exposure of pDC decreases the killing activity of these cells. After a pre-exposure to Diuron or DMSO (Ctrl), CAL-1 cells were stimulated by CpG for 36 h, and were co-cultured with U251 (a), MCF (b) OV90 (c) cells and PBMC (d) for another 4 h. The percentage of specific lysis was determined by cytotoxicity assay. Specific lysis (%) = (experimental release − spontaneous release)/(maximum release − spontaneous release) × 100
