Silenced miR-98 abrogated burn serum-increased permeability in rat aorta endothelial cells. After transfected with miR-98 inhibitor for 48 h, cells were incubated with burn serum or normal serum (as control) followed. (A) Profiles of protein expression were determined using Western blot. (B) Transendothelial electrical resistance and (C) permeability coefficient of albumin were examined with monolayer endothelial cells. The data were represented with mean ± SD. *
P < 0.05 compared with cell incubated with control plasma; #
P < 0.05 compared with cell incubated with burn plasma.
