Galangin Suppresses Renal Inflammation via the Inhibition of NF-κB, PI3K/AKT and NLRP3 in Uric Acid Treated NRK-52E Tubular Epithelial Cells

Figure 3

Effect of galangin on pro-inflammatory cytokines and mediators mRNA expression in UA treated NRK-52E cells. NRK-52E cells were treated with UA (50 μg/ml) in the presence of galangin (5, 10, or 20 μg/ml) and untreated cells were considered as the control. Then iNOS, PTGS2, TNF-α, IL-1β and IL-18 mRNA expression was measured by RT-qPCR. Results are expressed as mean ± SEM of three independent experiments. # p <0.05, ## p <0.01 vs control; p <0.05, p <0.01 vs UA group.
