Effect of Qing’e Decoction on Leptin/Leptin Receptor and Bone Metabolism in Naturally Aging Rats

Figure 3

Qing’e decoction can affect serum leptin, leptin receptor, and bone metabolism markers. These biomarkers were detected by ELISA. vs. same-sex 6-month-old rats; , vs. same-age and sex NS group but different intervention group; , vs. same-intervention and age group but different sex. OPG, osteoprotegerin; RANKL, receptor activator of nuclear factor-κB ligand; Cbfα-1, core-binding factor subunit α-1; COL-I, collagen-I; OC, osteocalcin; BALP, bone alkaline phosphatase; TRACP-5b, tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase 5b.
