Activation of TLR4-Mediated NF 𝜅 B Signaling in Hemorrhagic Brain in Rats

Figure 5

The increased phosphorylation of inhibitor of    in brain after ICH. The expression of p-IκB in brain tissue was measured by the method of Western Blots using specific antibodies for p-IκB and IκB . The signals were quantified by scanning densitometry and computer-assisted image analysis and expressed as the ratio of p-IκB to IκB . The results showed that the p-IκB increased at 6 hours after ICH ( ), peaked on 3 days after ICH and maintained a high level on 7 days after ICH ( ). #: compared with saline control, .
