From: HSP60 critically regulates endogenous IL-1β production in activated microglia by stimulating NLRP3 inflammasome pathway

Fig. 2

HSP60 is indispensable for IL-1β-mediated NF-κB phosphorylation. a, b Effect of IL-1β was checked on phosphorylation of p65-NF-κB in the cytoplasmic extracts of N9 cells (a) and mice brain (b). c, d Role of HSP60 in the induction of phosphorylation of p65 was checked in N9 cells by overexpression of HSP60 (c) and knockdown of HSP60 (d). e Effect of HSP60 knockdown with vivo-morpholino was checked in mice brain after IL-1β treatment for 3 days. Representative blots of three independent experiments are shown here. Bar diagrams below the blots represent quantification of the relative fold changes in phosphorylation of p65-NF-κB in comparison to control. The levels of p-p65-NF-κB were normalized with total p65-NF-κB. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01 in comparison to control values. ##p < 0.01 in comparison to IL-1β treatment. Data represented as means ±SD of three independent experiments
