Effect of Cpd861 on gene expression of SnoN, TGF-β1, Smad2, and Smad3 for sham operation, bile duct ligation, and Cpd861 groups, as detected by reverse transcription quantitative polymerase chain reaction. Relative gene expression levels for (a) SnoN, (b) TGF-β1, (c) Smad2, and (d) Smad3. Data are expressed as means ± standard deviations (n = 6). One-way analysis of variance was used for statistical comparisons. * P < 0.05 vs sham operation group; # P < 0.05 vs BDL group
