Figure 2

Expression of COX-2 in human vascular smooth muscle cells. Panel A: effect of glucose. Left panel: Western blotting shows the expression of COX-2 in non diabetic VSMC incubated with increasing concentrations of glucose. Right panel: Bar graph shows the mean±SEM of n = 4 patients, *P < 0.05 with respect to 5 mM glucose. Panel B: effect of triglycerides. Left panel: Western blotting shows the expression of COX-2 in non diabetic VSMC incubated with increasing concentrations of triglycerides. Right panel: Bar graph shows the mean±SEM of n = 4 patients, ***P < 0.001 with respect to control (vehicle, glycerol). Panel C: Effects of glyceril palmytate as a pure source of triglycerides.
