3,5,4′-tri-O-acetylresveratrol Ameliorates Seawater Exposure-Induced Lung Injury by Upregulating Connexin 43 Expression in Lung

Figure 5

Effects of 3,5,4′-tri-O-acetylresveratrol on Cx43 mRNA expression. The expression level of Cx43 mRNA was taken as “1” in normal lung, and its expression in other groups was compared with the normal expression. (A) control group; (B) seawater drowning group; (C), (D), and (E) different doses of 3,5,4′-tri-O-acetylresveratrol groups. The expression of Cx43 mRNA was increased by seawater, 3,5,4′-tri-O-acetylresveratrol pretreatment upregulated Cx43 mRNA expression. * versus control group; * versus ** ; ** versus *** .
