3β-Hydroxysteroid-Δ24 Reductase (DHCR24) Protects Pancreatic β Cells from Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress-Induced Apoptosis by Scavenging Excessive Intracellular Reactive Oxygen Species
Excessive intracellular ROS is scavenged by overexpression of DHCR24. (a) Intracellular ROS were detected by application of the fluorescent dye DCFHDA. Bar, 50 μm. (b) The levels of intracellular ROS are represented by the relative fluorescence of DCF (2,7-dichlorofluorescein). (). vs. the levels at 0 h after TM treatment. vs. Ad-LacZ.
