(b) Comparison of apoptotic cells in cultured podocyte of different groups evaluated by flow cytometry. (c) Comparison of apoptotic index in glomerulus of different groups assayed by TUNEL. BSF treatment significantly decreased high glucose (HG) or hyperglycemia-induced cellular apoptosis. versus normal control (NC) and versus DM or HG.
