Figure 5. TβRII siRNA
interferes with fibronectin and alpha-smooth muscle actin
(α-SMA) production. The level of fibronectin secreted and α-SMA
expression to the culture media was analyzed by western
blotting. Samples were from cultures untreated (lane 3), treated
with scrambled siRNA (lane 2), or 80 nM (lane 1) hT3. The
fibronectin (Fn) and α-SMA bands are labeled.
