(a) Quantitative results of retinal blood vessel leakage by Evans blue dye. Data are expressed as means ± SD (). compared to control; ### compared to DM without DC. (b) Retinal mRNA expression of occludin (Ocln), ZO-1 (Tjp1), claudin-1 (Cldn1), and claudin-5 (Cldn5). Data are expressed as means ± SD ( for control, for DM, for DM+DC 30 mg/kg, and for DM+DC 300 mg/kg). , compared to control; #, ## compared to DM without DC. (c) Retinal protein expression of occludin and claudin-1 is detected by immunoblotting using specific antibodies. The occludin protein represents four independent experiments, and claudin-1 protein represents two independent experiments.
