[…] The relative abundance of phosphorylated proteins was quantitated by densitometric analysis with the Image Processing and Analysis in Java Program ImageJ ( To calculate the densitometric values, the intensity of the phosphorylated band was divided by the intensity of the non-phosphorylated ones. These intensity values were referred to a value of 1.0 that was arbitrarily assigned to the untreated control. The statistical significance of triplicate blots, IL-12p40 mRNA levels and IL-12p40 protein levels were evaluated with the Tukey multiple-comparison test and One-Way analysis of variance (ANOVA) by using the SIGMASTAT program version 3.0 (SPSS Inc., Chicago, IL, USA). P values <0.05 or <0.01 or <0.001 were considered statistically significant. […]
