PI3k/Akt pathway is required for p38 and JNK MAPK activation induced by oxLDL.

<p>Adherent monocytes/macrophages were treated with LY294002 (10 µM, 30 min) and then stimulated with oxLDL (30 µg/mL) for 10 min. The MAPK Western blot analysis of cell lysates were performed using antibodies to phosphorylated and non-phosphorylated forms of ERK1/2, p38 and JNK (A, B and C, respectively). The autoradiographs show one representative experiment. Graph data are presented as mean ± SEM of four donors. Protein expression was quantified by the AlphaEaseFC™ software V3.2 beta (Alpha Innotech). * p<0.05 comparing oxLDL-stimulated with the non-stimulated cells (cont). <b>#</b> p<0.05 comparing cells treated with LY294002 with non-treated cells.</p>
