Effect of TGF-β1 on MMPs expression in A549. Gelatin zymography was performed using the conditioned media that were harvested after 48 h TGF-β1 treatment (0.1 to 5 ng/ml). The samples were applied without reduction to a 10% polyacrylamide gel containing gelatin, and proteolytic activity was demonstrated by digestion of the gelatin and clearing of the gel.
