2-ME effects on IFN mRNA levels. A)MG63 IFNα mRNA; B) MG63 IFNβ mRNA; C)143B IFNα mRNA; D)143B IFNβ mRNA; E) HOB IFNα mRNA; F) HOB IFNβ mRNA. Cells were treated with Veh and 2-ME (10 μM) for 24 hrs. Total RNA was isolated from cells and analyzed by real time PCR. Values are the mean ± SE(n = 6 replicate cultures) * P < 0.05 vs Veh.
