Animal and Human Rights Statement

All institutional and national guidelines for the care and use of laboratory animals were followed. All procedures in the animal experiments met the requirements and were approved by the Experimental Animal Welfare Ethics Committee of the South China Agricultural University. Euthanasia was performed using an intravenous injection of pentobarbital. All experimental animals were monitored by university-licensed veterinarians. All animal experiments were performed in a level 2 animal biosafety laboratory (A-BSL level 2).
