Heme oxygenase-2 gene deletion reduces protein oxidation in hemin-treated cultures. Top: Representative immunoblot of protein lysates from wild type (WT) or HO-2 knockout (KO) neuron/astrocyte cultures treated for 4 h with indicated hemin concentrations, stained with anti-DNP antibody to detect derivatized carbonyl groups. M: molecular weight standard with attached DNP residues. Bottom: The mean protein carbonyl signal intensity (± SEM, n = 5/condition) was normalized to that in wild-type cultures exposed to culture medium only (= 1.0) *P < 0.05; ***P < 0.001 versus signal in wild type cultures exposed to the same hemin concentration, Bonferroni multiple comparisons test.
