Figure 7 ASK1-JNK inhibition alleviated the effects of DUSP12 silencing. MLECs were transfected with DUSP12 siRNA, treated with the JNK inhibitor or ASK1 siRNA and then treated with LPS. (A) ASK1 protein levels after cells were transfected with ASK1 siRNA. (B) ELISA measurement of proinflammatory factors. (C) ROS level, MDA level, NADPH activity, and SOD activity. (D) TUNEL staining (magnification: 200). (E) Caspase-3 activity (* P<0.05 vs ScRNA/LPS; # P<0.05 vs siDUSP12/LPS). All in vitro studies were repeated 3 times independently.
