Figure 2 PQQ inhibits OS induced by STZ in DN. (A) Western blot detects GPX1 and GPX3 expression. (B) GPX1 mRNA. (C) GPX3 mRNA. (D) SOD content. (E) LDH content. (F) MDA content. (G) Flow cytometry was used to detect ROS levels. (H) Immunofluorescence detection of 8-OHdG expression (magnification: 200×). * Compared with the control group, P<0.05; # Compared with the DN group, P<0.05. PQQ – pyrroloquinoline quinone; OS – oxidative stress; STZ – streptozocin; DN – diabetic nephropathy; GPX – glutathione peroxidase; mRNA – messenger RNA; SOD – superoxide dismutase; LDH – lactate dehydrogenase; MDA – malondialdehyde; ROS – reactive oxygen species.
