Table 2 Fat cells are not required for the up-regulation of IL-8 release and IL-8 mRNA seen in nonfat cells over a 48 h incubation

From: The inflammatory response seen when human omental adipose tissue explants are incubated in primary culture is not dependent upon albumin and is primarily in the nonfat cells

IL-8 mRNA Change in tissue after 48 h [ratio] % Change in nonfat cells incubated for 48 h as compared to tissue % Change in nonfat cells isolated after 48 h as compared to tissue
  832-X +38 ± 17% +3 ± 12%
IL-8 release 48 h release by tissue in pmoles/g % Change in nonfat cells incubated for 48 h as compared to tissue  
  1450 +1 ± 16%  
  1. The change in IL-8 mRNA at 48 h is the fold-change derived from the ΔCp over 48 h of -9.6 ± 0.3. The values are from 8 experiments and the % changes are the mean ± SEM of the paired differences. None were statistically significant with a P < 0.05.
