Protein arginine methyltransferase 5 mediates THP-1-derived macrophage activation dependent on NF-κB in endometriosis

Macrophage-induced inflammation is a major factor in the pathogenesis of endometriosis. The underlying mechanisms, however, remain largely unknown. TNF-α, IL-6, IL-10 and C-C motif chemokine 20 (CCL20) levels in endometrial extracts were determined using Luminex cytokine kits. Additionally, protein arginine methyltransferase 5 (PRMT5) levels were measured using reverse transcription-quantitative PCR and western blotting. IL-6 and IP-10 levels...
