Used to isolate protein from kidney tissue from wild type or IL-33 deficient mice that underwent cisplatin-induced kidney injury; several proteins were detected by immunoblot analysis; even after several freeze thaws, data has been consistent*additionally added a protease inhibitor cocktail and phosphatase inhibitor cocktail + RIPA for protein isolation
