Figure 2: Effects of the Yangjing capsule extract on the expression of StAR (a), CYP11A1 (b), HSD3B (c) mRNAs and proteins in MLTC-1 cells. The Yangjing capsule extract was used to treat MLTC-1 cells for 24 h, and 0.1 U/mL hCG was added for 4 h. Expression of mRNAs was detected by real-time RT-PCR. Expression of proteins was detected by Western blot. The data are expressed as the percentage of the control (100%). The results are given as the means ± SD from three independent experiments. Compared with the control, , .
