Figure 2. Brazilin down-regulated the expression of iNOS and COX2 protein in LPS stimulated Raw264.7. Raw 264.7 macrophage cells (5×105 /well) were pretreated with 10, 30, or 50 μM brazilin for 1 h and then induced with 1 μg/mL LPS for an 24 h. The expression of iNOS and COX2 protein were detected by western blotting using iNOS, COX2, and GAPDH antibodies. DMSO was used as a vehicle. Data are expressed as mean ± SD (n=3)
