Figure 4

Effect of GM-CSF and G-CSF on MMP-9 secretion. Neutrophils were incubated with either GM-CSF (A) or G-CSF (B) at the concentration indicated for 50 min in the absence (white columns) or presence (grey columns) of 1 μM fMLP. fMLP was used as positive control. MMP-9 levels were measured in the supernatants. Results are shown as mean ± SEM of five experiments. ANOVA (with Tukey’s post hoc test) and Student t-test. In both panels, **P < 0.01: +fMLP controls vs. −fMLP controls; *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, and ***P < 0.0001 as compared with untreated and −fMLP controls or untreated and +fMLP controls.
