From: Cyclic stretch enhances the expression of Toll-like Receptor 4 gene in cultured cardiomyocytes via p38 MAP kinase and NF-κB pathway

Figure 4

Angiotensin II mediates the increase of TLR4 by cyclic stretch through angiotensin II receptor. (A) Representative Western blots for TLR4 in cardiomyocytes subjected to cyclic stretch by 20% for 6 h or without stretch in the presence or absence of inhibitors. (B) Quantitative analysis of TLR4 protein levels. The values from stretched cardiomyocytes have been normalized to values in control cells and the data are from 4 independent experiments.
