Kidney samples from obstructed kidneys of UUO and Hemin-treated animals were processed and RT-PCR performed for TNF-α (panel A), IL-6 (panel B), IL-1β (panel C), and MCP-1 (panel D). Kidney tissue from normal rats was used as a control, and assigned a value of 1.Data are shown as average ± s.e.m. * p<0,05 vs. UUO and # p<0,05 vs. Hemin 7 days.
