Qizhi Jiangtang Jiaonang Improves Insulin Signaling and Reduces Inflammatory Cytokine Secretion and Reactive Oxygen Species Formation in Insulin Resistant HepG2 Cells
QJJ reduces inflammatory cytokine levels in an IR model in HepG2 cells. Protein levels of TNF-α (a), IL-1β (b), and IL-6 (c) by HepG2 cells of the untreated control group, IR group, low-dose QJJ (20 μg/mL), intermediate-dose QJJ (40 μg/mL), high-dose QJJ (80 μg/mL), and SJK group (2.5 μg/mL SJK) were determined. TNF-α, IL-1β, and IL-6 levels were represented as mean ± SD ( per group). , , significantly different as compared with the control group; , significantly different as compared with the IR group.
