NF-κB induces Shh signaling pathway activation. a Western blot analysis of NF-κB, Shh, Ptch, and Smo in astrocytes co-cultured with ESP alone or JSH-23 for 2 h and then with 500 μg/ml ESP for 4 h; β-actin is shown as a control. Data are expressed as the mean ± SD from three independent experiments (**P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001). b The expression levels of Shh and GFAP in astrocytes. The Shh and GFAP protein expressions were determined by immunofluorescence staining of astrocytes with ESP alone or JSH-23 for 2 h and then with 500 μg/ml ESP for 4 h. (GFAP: green; Shh: red; DAPI: blue)
