Figure 4

Knockdown of PRDX2 expression exaggerates oxidative stress induced apoptosis in the β-cells. Western blot performed on cell lysate of MIN6 cells with PRDX2 knockdown via siRNA transfection or scrambled control followed with treatment of 0.4 mM palmitic acid or proinflammatory cytokine cocktail for 24 hrs (A, C). Quantitative analysis of cleaved caspase 3 expression with SEM, (B, D) n = 3 *p < 0.05.
