Reducing the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines through modulating the NF-κB signaling pathway. IL-1β (a), IL-6 (b) and TNF-α (c) gene expression was measured by RT-PCR. Expression of IL-1β, IL-6 and TNF-α (d) and β-actin was detected by Western blot analysis. β-actin was used as a housekeeping control. The results are expressed as mean ± S.D.; each data point is the average of 3 repeated measurements from 10 independently replicated experiments (n = 10). The different letters in the same rows mean significant difference (P < 0.05), the same letters in the same rows mean insignificant difference (P > 0.05)
