Figure 6. Effects of simvastatin on caveolin-1 expression and apoptosis in HLE-B3 cells treated with high concentrations of glucose. Cells were treated with simvastatin (10 nM) and glucose (5 or 25 mM) for 48 h. The ∆Ct values of CAV1 mRNA levels (A) and the percentages of apoptotic cells (B) were determined by real-time RT–PCR and flow cytometry, respectively. Experiments were performed in triplicate. A: The asterisk indicates p<0.01, and the hash mark denotes p>0.05. B: The asterisk indicates p<0.05, and the hash mark denotes p>0.05.
