Detection of CD3+ T cells (a-c) and F4/80+ monocytes/macrophages (d-f) by immunohistochemistry. Original magnification × 400. Arrows indicate positively stained cells. Scoring of CD3+ cells (g and h) or F4/80+ cells (i and j) in the glomerulus (g and i) or interstitium (h and j). k Nuclear NF-κBp65 activity. Bars show mean ± standard error of the mean for 7 mice per group; ***p <0.005, ns not significant. ALSN accelerated and severe lupus nephritis
