Figure 4 DUSP12 silencing worsened LPS-induced pulmonary endothelial cell injury. (A–E) MLECs were transfected with DUSP12 siRNA and treated with LPS. (A) Protein level of DUSP12 in MLECs transfected with siDUSP12. (B) mRNA levels of proinflammatory factors. (C) ELISA measurement of proinflammatory factors. (D) TUNEL staining (magnification: 200). (E) Caspase-3 activity (* P<0.05 vs ScRNA/PBS; # P<0.05 vs ScRNA/LPS). All in vitro studies were repeated 3 times independently.
