Effects of Huang Qi Decoction on Endothelial Dysfunction Induced by Homocysteine
(a) ROS generation was examined by DHE staining. Bar represented 100 μm. (A) Hcy group; (B) Hcy+HQT10 group; (C) Hcy+HQT30 group; (D) Hcy+HQT100 group; (E) Hcy+tempol group; (F) Hcy+apocynin group; and (G) control group. (b) Relative fluorescence intensity of intracellular ROS. (c) SOD activity. (d) MDA content. (e) LPO content. (f) H2O2 content. Data are shown as means ± SEM, ; HQD: Huang Qi decoction; control: Hcy and HQD untreated group; Hcy: HUVECs treated with Hcy; HQD10: HUVECs group treated with Hcy and HQD at a concentration of 10 μg/mL; HQD30: HUVECs group treated with Hcy and HQD at a concentration of 30 μg/mL; HQD100: HUVECs group treated with Hcy and HQD at a concentration of 100 μg/mL; tempol: HUVECs group treated with Hcy and tempol; and apocynin: HUVECs group treated with Hcy and apocynin. , , and versus the Hcy group.
