RNA expression of CCL2 (A) and CCL3 (B) by HBMEC determined by semi-quantitative RT-PCR. Increasing amounts of RNA (not shown) were used to detect differential expression in unstimulated HBMEC and cells treated with 100 U/ml TNF-α and 500 U/ml IFN-γ for 24 hrs. After amplification with gene-specific primers, CCL2 or CCL3 and GAPDH PCR samples were run on a 2% agarose gel after 35 and 25 cycles respectively, under the following conditions: pre-PCR step (94°C for 8 min, 55 - 60°C for 30 sec and 72°C for 3 min) and cycling (94°C for 1 min, 55 - 60°C for 30 sec and 72°C for 45 sec). The data shown are from one of three experiments for each chemokine with similar results.
