LXA4 inhibits the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in LPS-induced lung injury. C57BL/6 J mice were intra-tracheal given N.S or LPS 10 mg/kg (for 24 h, 48 h or 72 h), with or without LXA4 1μg per mouse intraperitoneal injection. Immunofluorescence staining of lung specimens was shot by fluorescence microscope and calculated by positive goals compared to DAPI. a-h: Immunofluorescence staining of marker of EMT (× 400): E-cadherin(a-b), N-cadherin(c-d), α-SMA(e-f) and Vimentin(g-h). i and j: co-dying of SP-C and α-SMA. scar bar = 50 μm. All of the data was conducted in triplicate. Data were presented with means ± SD. n = 3. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001, ****P < 0.0001
