Figure 4: The level of SO2/AAT1 pathway and the expression of collagen and TGF-β1/Smad2/3 pathway in rats.

From: Mechanical stretching stimulates collagen synthesis via down-regulating SO2/AAT1 pathway

Figure 4

(a) The expression of AAT1 and the concentration of SO2. (b) The effect of SO2 derivatives on collagen remodeling. (c) The effect of SO2 derivatives on the TGF-β1/Smad2/3 pathway. *P < 0.05, data are presented as mean ± SD (n = 8) and ANOVA followed by post-hoc analysis was used.
