Figure 4: Anti-aging and anti-inflammatory activities of edible bird's nests against ultraviolet B or tumor necrosis factor alpha/interferon gamma. (a-c) Fibroblast cells were treated with ultraviolet B irradiation. (a) Cell viability; (b) The messenger RNA levels of matrix metalloproteinase-1 and type I procollagen with GAPDH as an internal control; (c) Analysis of messenger RNA expression. (d-f) Keratinocyte cells were treated with tumor necrosis factor alpha/interferon gamma. (d) Cell viability; (e) The messenger RNA levels of thymus-and activation-regulated chemokine and macrophage-derived chemokine with GAPDH as an internal control; (f) Analysis of messenger RNA expression. All data are shown as the mean ± standard deviation of at least three independent experiments performed in triplicate. # and * indicate significant differences,#P < 0.05,##P < 0.01,###P < 0.001, compared to the non-treated control; *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001, compared to the only ultraviolet B irradiated cells
