Danggui extract inhibits the Ang II-induced H9c2 cardiomyoblast cells apoptosis. (A) Influence of pre-treatment or post-treatment with Danggui extract on Ang II-induced H9c2 cardiomyoblast apoptosis. The blue spot indicates DAPI staining representing the cell number. Percentage of apoptotic cells following pre-treatment (B) or post-treatment (C) with Danggui extract in the control and Ang II-treated H9c2 cells. The results are expressed as the mean ± S.E.M. of four independent experiments. #
P < 0.05, ###
P < 0.001 between the controls and cells treated with Ang II alone. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001 between cells treated with Ang II alone and cells treated with Ang II and Danggui extract.
