Figure 1. IKKβ-siRNA inhibits the
expression of IKKβ at both the mRNA and protein levels in
vitro. A: mRNA transcription of IKKβ in monkey Tenon’s
fibroblasts assessed by real-time RT–PCR 24 h after 5–100 nM IKKβ-siRNA
were transfected. The normalized IKKβ mRNA level of
nontransfected fibroblasts (control) is taken as 1.0 (the asterisk
indicates a p<0.05, mean±SD, n=3). B: Protein levels of IKKβ
are demonstrated by western blot.
