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. 7

APS modulated apoptosis-related proteins in the extrinsic pathways. 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 for the cytoplasmic fraction. a. Semi-quantitative expressions of cleaved caspase 3 in different groups. b. Semi-quantitative expressions of caspase 8 in different groups. Data were expressed as Mean ± SD. ** P < 0.01 versus 5.5 mmol/L glucose group; ## P < 0.01 versus 33 mmol/L glucose group
