The Neuroprotective Effects of Ratanasampil on Oxidative Stress-Mediated Neuronal Damage in Human Neuronal SH-SY5Y Cells

Figure 3

The effects of RNSP on H2O2-induced DNA damage in SH-SY5Y cells. (a) Fluorescent images of MitoSOX Red signals in the H2O2-incubated cells (100 μM, 1 h) with or without RNSP (60 μg/mL, 2 h). Scale bar = 10 μm. (b) REST expression, as analyzed by real-time quantitative RT-PCR, in the H2O2-exposed cells (100 μM, 1 h, 2 h), with or without RNSP (60 μg/mL, 2 h). Each column and bar represent the mean ± SEM ( each). Asterisks indicate a statistically significant difference from the value in the untreated cells (, ). Pound signs indicate a statistically significant difference from the value in the H2O2-incubated cells without RNSP (#, ##). (c) Immunofluorescent CLMS images of 8-oxo-dG (green) with Hoechst-stained nuclei (blue) in the H2O2-exposed cells (100 μM 4 h), with or without RNSP (60 μg/mL, 2 h). Scale bar = 10 μm. (d) The quantitative analyses of 8-oxo-dG immunofluorescence signal intensity in (c). Each column and bar represent the mean ± SEM ( each). Asterisks indicate a statistically significant difference from the value in the untreated cells (). Pound signs indicate a statistically significant difference from the value in the H2O2-exposed cells without RNSP (###).
