Atorvastatin inhibits the resistin protein expression induced by TNF-α in a dose-dependent manner. A, Representative Western blots for resistin in macrophages treated with TNF-α with or without atorvastatin. B, Quantitative analysis of resistin protein levels. The values from treated macrophages have been normalized to values in control cells. (n = 4 per group). *P < 0.05 vs. TNF-α. **P < 0.001 vs. TNF-α.
