Pyroptosis expression in the cardiac tissues. (a) Relative mRNA expression of NLRP3, caspase-1, IL-1β, and IL-18 in cardiac tissue of three groups with different treatments. (b) Immunoblotting for NLRP3, caspase-1, IL-1β, and IL-18 protein expression in cardiac tissues. (c) Bar graph showing quantification of NLRP3, caspase-1, IL-1β, and IL-18 protein expression. Data are given as the ; -6 in each group. .
