Figure 5

Effect of shikonin on the ERK pathway during the early stages of adipogenesis. (A) The time-dependent effect of PD98059 (10 μM), FGF-2 (1 nM), and shikonin (1 μM) on ERK 1/2 activity was analyzed by Western blotting. (B) The cells were treated with shikonin (2 μM) plus different doses of FGF-2. Cells were harvested at 10 min and examined with Western blotting as described in the Figure 2 legend.
