IGF-1 mediates the protective effects of ASC when challenged by proinflammatory cytokines. a Cell death measured by LDH assay in islets cultured in normal medium or in CP-ASC-conditioned medium and stimulated with proinflammatory cytokines in the presence or absence of anti-IGF-1 antibody. b Cell death measured by the Apoptosis ELISA kit in the same culture supernatants as a. Data are from at least three individual experiments. *p < 0.05 ANOVA with Bonferroni adjusted Student’s t test. ELISA enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, IGF-1 insulin-like growth factor-1, IFN interferon, IL interleukin, LDH lactate dehydrogenase
