Moxibustion Ameliorates Ovarian Reserve in Rats by Mediating Nrf2/HO-1/NLRP3 Anti-Inflammatory Pathway

Figure 6

Effects of moxibustion on Nrf2, HO-1, and NLRP3 expression at transcriptional and translational level. (a) Representative images of ovarian with IHC staining of Nrf2, HO-1, and NLRP3 (n = 3 each group, ×400, scale bars: 100 μm). (b, c, d) Quantitative analysis of Nrf2, HO-1, and NLRP3 positive area detected by IHC. The positive area was expressed as mean ± s. ; ns: not significant; . (e) The relative expressions of Nrf2, HO-1, and NLRP3 mRNA were expressed as mean ± s (n = 3 each group). ; ; ns: not significant; .
