Pueraria lobata Extract Protects Hydrogen Peroxide-Induced Human Retinal Pigment Epithelial Cells Death and Membrane Permeability

Figure 4

Inhibitory effects of P. lobata extract and its single compounds on paracellular permeability. (a) Systems to detect permeability of RPE cells using Transwell insert. (b) After the treatment, FITC-dextran permeability was examined for 90 min. Data indicate that P. lobata (10 μg/mL) and its single compounds (1 μM) have an inhibitory effect on H2O2-induced paracellular permeability in RPE cells. Data are expressed as the mean ± SEM. (n = 4). vs. control; vs. H2O2-induced cells.
