Burn serum stimulation increased permeability of rat aorta endothelial cell monolayers. Rat aorta endothelial cells were incubated with burn serum for 12 h. (A) Level of miR-98 expression was determined using quantitative real-time PCR. (B) Profiles of tight junction-associated proteins expression were evaluated using Western blot. (C) Transendothelial electrical resistance and (D) permeability coefficient of albumin were performed with monolayer endothelial cells. The data were represented with mean ± SD. *
P < 0.05 compared with control plasma.
