[Retracted] Molecular Pathways Involved in Promoting Activity of Timosaponin BII on Hair Growth in C57BL/6 Mice

Figure 2

Hair follicle growth in the dorsal skins of C57BL/6 mice after topical application with minoxidil (2%) and timosaponin BII (0.5%) for 15 days. Water was used as the blank control, and sections were analyzed using hematoxylin-eosin staining. (a) Longitudinal and horizontal sections of the dorsal skins were stained, and the image shown is a representative picture of mice (green line indicates the junction of the epidermis, dermis, and subcutis). (b) Quantitative histomorphometric analysis of hair follicle number. The data are presented as the , , compared with the blank control group, .
