Ambient particulate matter attenuates Sirtuin1 and augments SREBP1-PIR axis to induce human pulmonary fibroblast inflammation: molecular mechanism of microenvironment associated with COPD

Figure 4. NLRP3 inflammasome was upregulated by PM exposure. (A) mRNA level of NLRP3 after PM in HPF. (B) Western blot analysis of NLRP3 and IL-1β after PM in HPF. (C) mRNA level of NLRP3 in Ex527-PM co-treated HPF models. (D) mRNA levels of NLRP3 in PF429242-PM co-treated HPF models. (E) Western blot analysis of PIR, SREBP1, and NLRP3 in TPh A-PM co-treated HPF models.
