Supplemental Fig 1: SAA up-regulates Visfatin expression in cultured RAW264.7 cells. To further confirm the effect of SAA, we also purchased recombinant human apo-SAA1 from Sigma-Aldrich (St Louis, MO). RAW264.7 macrophages were again cultured and stimulated with SAA (50 µg/ml, Sigma, SRP4324) for 24 h. The expression of Visfatin was detected with western blot and real-time PCR respectively at protein level. ** P < 0.01 versus control group. Data shown are means ± SEM from three independent experiments in duplicate.
