Figure 9 Overexpression of STAT3 and CypA inhibited the IL-37-induced reduction of apoptosis of high glucose-treated podocytes. Western blot was used to detect the expression of apoptosis-related proteins in cells. *** p<0.001 vs. NG; ### p<0.001 vs. HG; & p<0.05, && p<0.01 vs. HG+IL-37. NG – normal glucose group (medium with 5.5 mM glucose); HG – high-glucose group (medium with 30 mM glucose); HG+IL-37 – high-glucose group with added IL-37.
