Figure 2

Ethanol activates p38 MAPK in human liver cell cultures. Huh7 cells or primary human fetal hepatocytes (HFH) were left as untreated controls (C) or were treated with anisomycin (A) as a positive control, or with 25, 50, or 100 mM ethanol for 30 minutes. Active p38 MAPK was immunoprecipitated from cell lysates and kinase activity measured by phosphorylation of ATF-2. The figure is representative of 2 experiments that produced similar results.
