Expression of PTGS isoforms in pancreas. A: Expression of PTGS mRNA in pancreas and isolated islets from mouse. RNA was isolated from pancreas and from isolated islets,
and mRNA expression for PTGS-1 and PTGS-2 was analyzed by PCR in comparison with SLC2A2 and proinsulin mRNA expression. B: Effect of STZ on pancreatic expression of PTGS-1 and PTGS-2. STZ or vehicle was injected on day 1. On day 4, pancreata were
prepared, and mRNA expression for PTGS-1 and PTGS-2 was analyzed by PCR in comparison with β-actin mRNA expression. CTRL,
wild-type mice. Data are shown as mean ± SEM; n = 3. *P < 0.05.
