((a) and (b)) Gene expression analysis of fibronectin, integrins, TGF-β1, and procollagen was performed by quantitative RT-PCR. (c) Comparison of the percentages of collagen type 1-positive areas between groups. Analysis of relative gene expression data employed Livak’s method (). Values were normalized to the gene expression levels of the control group. , Student’s -test.
