BV-2 microglia express GPR18 mRNA and GPR18 receptors. (A) Gel electrophoresis of BV-2 microglia and HEK293-GPR18 RT-qPCR products. RT-qPCR products were collected from the RT-qPCR run, loading buffer was added to the samples, and samples were run on a 2% agarose gel. No template control (NTC) and a control without reverse transcription (NRT) were used as controls. (B) Representative qPCR amplification curves showing the different amounts of mRNAs for GPR18 in primary microglia and BV-2 cells; n = 3.
