Table 1 Differences in NO, IL-6, and leptin amounts quantified between macrophage-containing transwell inserts and adipocyte-containing wells (average of all treatments)

From: Effects of co-incubation of LPS-stimulated RAW 264.7 macrophages on leptin production by 3T3-L1 adipocytes: a method for co-incubating distinct adipose tissue cell lines

Molecule Average amount of molecule in transwell (macrophages) Average amount of molecule in well (adipocytes) Difference between transwell and well (matched pairs t test)
NO (mM) 7.2 ± 1.0 6.0 ± 1.0 p = 0.26
IL-6 (pg/ml) 1172.2 ± 122.0 1115.76 ± 122.0 p = 0.65
Leptin (pg/ml) 478.2 ± 47.5 627.1 ± 47.5 p = 0.004*
  1. Matched pairs t tests with p < 0.05 indicate significant difference in amount of molecule measured in transwells and wells
