a Expression of NGAL mRNA in the LPS-treated HK-2. Data are means ± SD of three separate experiments in duplicate. There was a 2.2-fold increase in NGAL mRNA expression 1 h after LPS treatment, which increased to 3.2-fold at 3 h and then decreased to 1.8-fold at 6 h. NGAL: neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin, LPS: lipopolysaccharide. **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001, relative to the control group. b Expression of caspase 3 mRNA in the LPS-treated HK-2. Data are means ± SD of three separate experiments in duplicate. There was a 2.02-fold increase in NGAL mRNA expression at 1 h after LPS treatment, and this decreased to 1.3-fold at 3 h. **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001, relative to controls. NGAL: neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin, LPS: lipopolysaccharide
