MCPs inhibit MPP+-induced apoptosis and reduce oxidative stress. (a) Flow cytometry to detect cell apoptosis rate after Annexin V-FITC/PI staining. (b) PI staining fluorescence microscope to observe cell apoptosis. (c) The expression level of an oxidative stress-related protein Cytochrome C, and the expression levels of apoptosis-related proteins Bcl-2, Bax, and cleaved Caspase-3 in cells. (d) TH protein level in the cells. Compared with Control group (Control+MCPs group), , compared with PD group, ##, ###.
