Effects of Esr1 silencing on inflammatory markers gene expression in differentiated 3T3-L1 adipocytes. Esr1 gene was silenced using siRNA, and cells were collected 72 h after silencing. Relative mRNA expression of Tnf-α (a), Il-6 (b), Nfκb1 (c), and Rela (d). Data are presented as mean ± SEM values. Asterisk indicates P < 0.05 compared to control group (C). Pound indicates P < 0.05 × LPS group. Dollar sign indicates P < 0.05 × LPS + 17 α-E2 group. Ampersand indicates P < 0.05 × siRNA group. (n = 3 independent rounds of cells)
