Icariin Prevents H2O2-Induced Apoptosis via the PI3K/Akt Pathway in Rat Nucleus Pulposus Intervertebral Disc Cells

Figure 4

The effect of icariin on the PI3K/Akt pathway. (a) Prolonged culturing of NP cells with icariin increases the expression of p-Akt ( versus control group). (b) p-Akt and p53 levels in NP cells treated with different agents ( versus control group; versus H2O2 group; versus group (C); versus group (B)). Data are expressed as means ± SD ().
