Ultrafiltration Extract of Radix Angelica Sinensis and Radix Hedysari Attenuates Risk of Low-Dose X-Ray Radiation-Induced Myocardial Fibrosis In Vitro
RAS-RH alleviated the expression of TGF-β1, Col1, and α-SMA in CFs after X-ray radiation. (a, b) Representative images indicate the protein level of TGF-β1, COL1, and α-SMA were analyzed with western blotting by Image-J in the Con, X-ray, and RAS-RH + X-ray groups (n = 3, , vs. the control group, , vs. X-ray group). (c) Quantitative real-time RT-PCR analysis of TGF-β1, COL1, and α-SMA mRNA levels in the Con, X-ray, and RAS-RH + X-ray groups (n = 3, , vs. the control group, , vs. X-ray group).
