Rhubarb Tannins Extract Inhibits the Expression of Aquaporins 2 and 3 in Magnesium Sulphate-Induced Diarrhoea Model

Figure 4

Rhubarb tannins extract (RTE) inhibits the protein and gene expression of aquaporins (AQPs) 2 and 3 in the colons of magnesium sulphate-induced diarrhoea mice by western blot and real-time Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction. ((a) and (b)) Expression levels of AQPs 2 and 3 protein in the colons of normal control, vehicle-treated diarrhea, and RTE- (125, 250, and 500 mg/kg) treated diarrhoea mice. ((c) and (d)) Expression levels of AQPs 2 and 3 mRNA in the colons of mice. Data are represented as the mean ± SD. ### versus normal control group. , , and versus vehicle group, respectively. in each group and each assay was repeated 3 times.
