Induction and detection of chemotatic protein S100A8 in RAW 264.7 cells
A.B. Lucas S.S.
This study was performed to establish an in vitro basis for examining the effects of the chemokine S100A8 in cystic fibrosis lung disease. S100A8 expression was induced in RAW 264.7 macrophage using LPS. Western blotting and qRT-PCR were performed to detect S100A8 expression. Results show a clear upregulation of S100A8 on the genomic and proteomic levels and thus establishes a basis for further study.
