Regulation of PINX1 expression ameliorates lipopolysaccharide-induced lung injury and alleviates cell senescence during the convalescent phase through affecting the telomerase activity


Figure 6. PINX1 regulated NF-κB p65 expression and the telomerase activity via directly interacting with TERT. The expression of TERT, PINX1, and NF-κB p65 on (A) D3 and (B) D14 was determined using western blot analysis. (C) The telomerase activity was measured using commercial kit. **P<0.01, ***P<0.001 vs. Control; #P<0.05, ##P<0.01, ###P<0.001 vs. Model+vector; ΔΔΔP<0.001 vs. Model+OE-PINX1. (D) Co-immunoprecipitation assay was carried out to verify the interactions between PINX1 and TERT.
