Figure 1. Effect of quercetin on inflammation in TNF-α-induced HepG2 cells. (A) mRNA expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines (TNF-α, IL-1β, and IL-6) in TNF-α-induced HepG2 cell. (B) Representative Western blots for total protein and phosphorylation of NF-κB in TNF-α-induced HepG2 cells. The data are expressed as the mean ± standard deviation (n=3). The different letters show a significant difference at p < 0.05 as determined by Duncan’s multiple range test.
