Phospho-STAT3 (pSTAT3) karyopherins-related nuclear translocation in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) of 5 patients with delayed graft function (DGF) and 5 with early graft function (EGF) after short stimulation with Interleukin (IL)-6. (A and B) Histograms represent the pSTAT3/STAT3 ratio after 2 and 5 minutes of IL-6 stimulation in PBMCs isolated from 5 DGF and 5 EGF patients, respectively; (C) Panels report a representative experiment of the nuclear translocation of p-STAT3 in PBMCs of DGF (upper) and EGF (lower) in basal conditions and after 2 and 5 minutes of IL-6 stimulation. (*) p-value versus basal.
