 IL-8 levels in tissues of FABP-rtTA × TRE2IL-8 mice after DOX induction*

Tissueng IL-8 per mg total proteinInduction ratio†
*Tissues were harvested from untreated FABP-rtTA × TRE2IL-8 mice or double transgenic mice that were given DOX in drinking water for 72 hours. The IL-8 content of the homogenised tissue was determined by ELISA and normalised to the total protein concentration. The IL-8 values from the DOX-induced mice are shown.
