Apelin Protects Primary Rat Retinal Pericytes from Chemical Hypoxia-Induced Apoptosis
Pericytes transducted with Lentivirus-Apelin. (a) Immunofluorescence staining of LV-apelin infection in pericyte. Interference efficacy arrived about 90%, MOI = 100. Scale bar = 100 µm. (b) The mRNA expression of LV-Apelin was decreased by 75% after blocking by siRNA sequence (). (c and d). The western blot analysis shows that protein of expression of LV-Apelin decreased by 64% ().
