Figure 3 Lipopolysaccharide stimulation increased Nalp3 inflammasome mRNA expression in liver tissue. Liver RNA analysis of Nalp3 (A), apoptosis-associated speck-like, caspase recruitment domain-domain containing protein (ASC) (B), caspase-1 (C) and pannexin-1 (D) were analyzed by real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction. The values were normalized to 18S and are shown as a fold increase to the non-lipopolysaccharide (LPS) stimulated control. Mean ± SD are shown. n = 3 per group, aP < 0.01, bP < 0.03, cP < 0.05.
