Effect of ucMSC on ex vivo liver slices. Gene expression levels and cytokine/chemokine levels were measured in liver slices treated with LPS and supernatant, respectively. (a)(b)(c) Both gene expression levels and secretion levels were measured for MCP-1, TNF-α and IL-6. In addition, d gene expression levels of IP-10 and also e CXCL1 were measured in the medium. Results are shown as means ± SEM (n = 6). *Indicates significant difference (p < 0.05).
