Figure 5 Lipopolysaccharide increased interleukin-1β and interleukin-18 protein. Protein level was detected in liver tissue by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for total-interleukin (IL)-1β (pro-IL-1β and cleaved IL-1β) (A), cleaved IL-1β in the liver tissue (B),cleaved IL-1β in the serum (C) and total IL-18 (pro-IL-18 and cleaved IL-18) (D) in liver tissue. The values shown are the fold change compared to non-Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) stimulated control. Protein levels were normalized to total protein concentrations in each tissue sample. Mean ± SD are shown. n = 3 per group (except at 2 h LPS stimulation, where n = 2 due to an outlier), aP < 0.01.
