From: The effect of Astragalus polysaccharides on attenuation of diabetic cardiomyopathy through inhibiting the extrinsic and intrinsic apoptotic pathways in high glucose -stimulated H9C2 cells

Fig. 5

APS modulated the mRNA expression levels of intrinsic apoptotic pathway-related factors. H9C2 cells were pre-incubated with/without APS for 24 h and then treated with 33 mmol/L glucose for 24 h. The expression of GAPDH was measured as an internal control. a. the relative mRNA expression levels of caspase 9 in different groups. b. the relative mRNA expression levels of cytochrome C in different groups. Data were expressed as Mean ± SD. ** P < 0.01 versus 5.5 mmol/L glucose group; # P < 0.05 versus 33 mmol/L glucose group. ## P < 0.01 versus 33 mmol/L glucose group
