Protective Role of Psoralea corylifolia L. Seed Extract against Hepatic Mitochondrial Dysfunction Induced by Oxidative Stress or Aging

Figure 5

Effects of the PCS extract on mitochondrial biogenesis in H2O2-treated HepG2 cells. (a)–(d) HepG2 cells were treated without (−) or with 200 μg/mL of the PCS extract for 24 h, and 1 mM H2O2 was added during the last 3 h. The mRNA levels of hPGC1α (a) and hCPT1α (b) and protein levels (c) were measured. (d) Genomic DNA was isolated from HepG2 cells. Long PCR of the mitochondrial genome was carried out. (e) HepG2 cells were treated without (−) or with 0.5–4 μg/mL of bakuchiol for 24 h, and 1 mM H2O2 was added during the last 3 h. Genomic DNA was isolated from HepG2 cells. Long PCR of the mitochondrial genome was carried out. CON, treatment with nothing. Resveratrol (Res, 50 μM) was used as a positive control.
