Nicotine instigates podocyte injury via NLRP3 inflammasomes activation

Figure 5. Inhibition of inflammasome abolishes nicotine-induced cell permeability in podocytes. Values are arithmetic means ± SEM (n=6 each group) of cell permeability in podocytes with or without stimulation of nicotine and/or WEHD. *significant difference from control, #significant difference from nicotine treated group.
