This study investigated the α-smooth muscle actin (α-SMA) inhibitory activity of traditional doenjang in Korea. Only the traditional doenjang of which quality was certificated in Korea was used in this study. The most significant marker for fibrolysis is the expression of α-SMA and when MEF cells were treated with extract of Kyongbuk doenjang, the α-SMA expression was suppressed 74%, Gangwon and Chunbuk doenjang were suppressed the α-SMA expression more than 60% compared with the control… Expand
