  • Fig. S1. H2O2, but not TNF-α or LPS, induces IL-11 production in HepG2 cells.
  • Fig. S2. t-BuOOH induces Il11 expression.
  • Fig. S3. Il11 mRNA expression is increased in dying cells.
  • Fig. S4. Activation of the ERK pathway is critical for Il11 mRNA expression in RelA–/– MEFs and HepG2 cells.
  • Fig. S5. The PI3K-Akt pathway partly contributes to the expression of Il11 mRNA.
  • Fig. S6. Oxidative stress induces the formation of high–molecular mass oligomers of MKP3.
  • Fig. S7. H2O2 activates the Il11 promoter in HCT116 cells.
  • Fig. S8. Fra-1 interacts with ERK2.
  • Fig. S9. The ROS-induced increased abundance of Fra-1 is not regulated at the level of mRNA.
  • Fig. S10. Serum IL-11 concentrations are increased in mice after induction of severe hepatitis.
  • Fig. S11. Amelioration of oxidative stress suppresses IL-11 production and phosphorylation of STAT3 in APAP-induced hepatitis.
  • Fig. S12. Amelioration of oxidative stress suppresses IL-11 production and phosphorylation of STAT3 in hepatitis induced with antibody against Fas.
  • Fig. S13. IL-11 is produced by hepatocytes upon oxidative stress.
  • Fig. S14. The IL-11R agonist NT-3N induces STAT3-dependent signals.
  • Fig. S15. The IL-11R agonist NT-3N ameliorates APAP-induced oxidative stress.
