From: Heat-stress-modulated induction of NF-κB leads to brucellacidal pro-inflammatory defense against Brucella abortus infection in murine macrophages and in a mouse model

Fig. 3

Heat stress caused an increase in NF- κB and iNOS expression in splenic cells. The expression of heterodimers of NF- κB: p50, p52 and p65 from splenic cells was quantified by RT-PCR (a). Immunoblot analysis of the expression of heterodimers of NFkB: p50, p52 and p65 from splenic cells (b). Immunoblot analysis of iNOS expression following heat exposure (c). Asterisks indicate significant differences (p < 0.05)
