Figure 5. Renal mRNA expression of inflammasome components A: NLRP3 (Nlpr3),B:Asc, C: caspase-1 (Casp-1), interleukins D: 1β (Il-1b),E: 18 (Il-18) and F: 6 (Il-6) and G: tumor necrosis factor α (Tnf-α) in young and aged mice (n=7-8). Brain mRNA expression of H:Nlpr3,I:Asc, J:Casp-1, K:Il-1b,L:Il-18,M:Il-6 and N:Tnf-α in young and aged mice (n=7-8). All data are mean ± S.E.M. *P<0.05 vs young, Student’s unpaired t-test.
