Co-exposure to multi-walled carbon nanotube and lead ions aggravates hepatotoxicity of nonalcoholic fatty liver via inhibiting AMPK/PPARγ pathway

Figure 8. Combined administration of MWCNTs and PbAc significantly enhanced inflammatory cytokine expressions in NAFLD mice livers. (A, B) The effects of the low dose of PbAc, MWCNTs or MWCNTs + PbAc on the expressions of IL-6, IL-1β and TNF-α in the control and NAFLD mice livers (*P<0.05, compared to saline water).
