Obesity Related Alterations in Plasma Cytokines and Metabolic Hormones in Chimpanzees

Figure 6

Measurement of cytokines in PBMCs stimulated with TLR ligands. PBMCs isolated from lean and obese chimpanzee blood were stimulated with TLR ligands for 20 hr and supernatants were measured for cytokines using Bio-Rad 200, Luminex technology as described above. The results are expressed as pg/mL concentration. The results shown are an average of two distinct experiments. Comparison between groups of chimpanzees was done by one-way analysis of variance with the Kruskal-Wallis test as described above.
