Illicium v. decreases expression levels of NF-κB and other inflammatory genes in aortas from high-fat diet-fed ApoE−/− mice. a Expression levels of TNF-α, IL-1β, NF-κB, and COX were determined by western blot analysis. b Relative abundance of protein was calculated by ratio for expressed TNF-α, IL-1β, NF-κB, and COX. c Total protein expression and phosphorylation of IκB-α and Iκκ-α/β were detected by western blot analysis. All data represent mean values ± SEM. ***P < 0.001 versus control; #P < 0.05, ##P < 0.01, ###P < 0.001 versus HFD
