Infection with Opportunistic Bacteria Triggers Severe Pulmonary Inflammation in Lupus-Prone Mice

Figure 3

Infection induced heightened production of inflammatory cytokines in lupus-prone mice. B6 and B6/lpr mice were infected with Hi (B6 Hi and B6/lpr Hi). Uninfected mice were set as controls (B6 UI and B6/lpr UI). Two days after infection, all the mice were sacrificed and BALF was collected. (a) Protein levels were determined with the BCA assay. (b, c) Chemokines and (d–f) inflammation-related cytokines in the BALF were measured by ELISA. Data were expressed as . mice for each treatment group. , , and . ns: no significant difference. This experiment is representative of three individual experiments.
