<p>IL-6 levels in MLE-12 cell lysate and cell culture media with (cyclic S) or without stretch (con) were measured by ELISA. *P<0.05, ***P<0.001 compared with control. Each stretching group collected from three wells in a single experiment and the bar graphs illustrate data representative of three independent experiments.</p>
