Figure 6

Effect of butyrate on the cytoplasmic expression of NF-κB in lung tissues of mice with ALI. A., B. and C. Representative Western blots showed the cytoplasmic expression of NF-κB p65 in lung tissues in different groups. D. Mean ± SEM NF-κB p65 optical densitometry from different groups. The expression of NF-κB p65 in cytoplasm was significantly reduced by LPS administration and these changes were inhibited by butyrate pretreatment. Data are expressed as mean ± SEM, *P < 0.05 vs. control and butyrate group; #P < 0.05 vs. LPS group.
