GBA2 silencing reduces the IL-8 protein release in CuFi-1 cells.

CuFi-1 cells were transfected with GBA2 siRNA or scrambled oligonucleotides and then infected with PAO1 as indicated in figure 5. The supernatants were collected at the end of infection, and IL-8 protein release was measured as detailed in the “Methods” section. The data reported are the mean ± SE of eight independent experiments performed in duplicate. Comparisons between groups were made by using Student’s t tests.
