Effect of Exogenous Fetuin-A on TGF-β/Smad Signaling in Hepatic Stellate Cells

Abstract

Objective. To explore the effects of low concentration of exogenous fetuin-A intervention on TGF-β1 induced LX2 cells through detection of the expression of mRNA and protein of Smad2, Smad3, and Smad7. Methods. MTT assay was used to detect the LX2 cells proliferation and the regression equation calculating software was applied to determine IC50 of fetuin-A… (More)
