Cytotoxicity of Cnidii rhizoma and Tabanus was determined by counting the number of cells that remained adherent to the cell monolayer and excluded trypan blue.
After incubation of GMCs with Cnidii rhizoma or Tabanus as described above, cell supernatants were collected and frozen at -70[degrees]C until assayed by a TGF-[beta]1 ELISA kit (R & D systems) according to the manufacturer's specifications.
Inhibitory effects of Cnidii rhizoma and Tabanus on high glucose-induced GMC proliferation was firstly examined, and the result is shown in Fig.
Therefore, this study determined whether extracts of Cnidii rhizoma and Tabanus had any influences on high glucose-stimulated collagen production in GMCs.
The effects of Cnidii rhizoma and Tabanus on the synthesis of other ECM components were also examined by measuring fibronectin content in the GMCs, and the obtained results are shown in Fig.
Therefore, this study investigated whether inhibitory effects of Cnidii rhizoma and Tabanus on the high glucose-stimulated accumulation of collagen and fibronectin were dependent on the altered TGF-[beta]1 production in GMCs, and the results are shown in Fig.
