Nicotine instigates podocyte injury via NLRP3 inflammasomes activation

Figure 1. Effect of Nicotine on podocyte injury. Representative immunofluorescence images (A) and summarized quantification data shows Podocin (B) and Nephrin (C) expression in podocytes treated with different concentrations of Nicotine (2μM, 4μM, 8μM). Images were quantified using Image J software. N=5. * Significant difference from control.
