Figure 2: Increased cardiac inflammatory cytokines following LPS administration in APN-KO mice. (a) Myocardium TNF- levels in WT () and APN-KO () mice 6 h after LPS or vehicle injection. (b) Myocardium IL-6 levels in WT () and APN-KO () mice 6 h after LPS or vehicle injection. Levels of mRNA in the myocardium of WT and APN-KO mice were quantified by real-time RT-PCR and expressed relative to GAPDH mRNA levels. Results are presented as mean ± SE.
