From: Impairment of autophagy in the central nervous system during lipopolysaccharide-induced inflammatory stress in mice

  Cortex Hippocampus
IL-1β 23.94±6.71 18.05±1.44 35.1±1.22 49.32±8.25
TNF-α 1.24±0.29 1.78±0.10 1.62±0.20 1.67±0.56
IL-6 3.83±0.95 3.56±0.24 5.33±0.26 3.87±0.08
  1. Levels of IL-1β, TNF-α and IL-6 measured by ELISA in cortex and hippocampus of 3- months old mice treated with 3 i.p. injections of LPS at 3mg/kg or saline (0.9% NaCl) per 24 h before sacrifice. Cytokine levels are expressed in pg/mg of protein. Results are±SEM of 3 mice per group.
