Figure 3:

Induction of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) after honey exposure. Confluent monolayers of cells were exposed to 0.1% honeys for 24 h. Culture supernatants were harvested and MMPs and their tissue inhibitors (TIMPs) were detected using the MMP-Array kit from RayBiotech, Inc. (see Methods). Bars are mean±SD of fluorescence arbitrary units recorded in two independent experiments, expressed as percent variation respect to control. *P < 0.05, according to Tukey’s test.
