AC and marein ameliorated fibrotic markers by regulating NF-κB signaling. HBZY-1 cells were pretreated with AC and marein for 2 h, and then stimulated with PDTC, an NF-κB inhibitor followed by NG or HG exposure for 24 h. Equal amounts of lysate were subjected to western blotting analysis to determine TGF-β1, CollagenIV, and FN. Note: Values were expressed as the mean ± SD, n = 4. #P < 0.01 versus normal group; *P < 0.05 versus control group; **P < 0.01 versus control group
