Thioglycollate elicited peritoneal macrophages from BALB/c mice were stimulated with 0,5 µM AvCystatin or the same amount of denaturated AvCystatin as a control. After the indicated time points total cell extracts were isolated and analyzed by western blot with antibodies against phospho-p38, total-p38, phospho-ERK, total-ERK, phospho-AKT, total-AKT and beta-actin. (A, C, E) Representative blots are shown. (B, D, F) Densitometric analysis (mean ± SD, n = 3–4) of phospho-p38, phospho-ERK and phospho-AKT normalized to the endogenous control are expressed as fold induction relative to the medium control.
