Table 6 The ratios of mRNA expression levels of Thy-1 or MMP-9 to that of β-actin

From: Chi-Ju-Di-Huang-Wan protects rats against retinal ischemia by downregulating matrix metalloproteinase-9 and inhibiting p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase

Group 1 2 3 4
Thy-1/β-actin (n = 5) 0.99 ± 0.38 0.31 ± 0.15** 0.45 ± 0.20 0.78 ± 0.32
MMP-9/β-actin (n = 3–4) 0.75 ± 0.55 4.44 ± 0.84** 3.01 ± 1.90 1.13 ± 0.34††
  1. In retinal ischemia plus 24 h of reperfusion (I/R), total mRNA was extracted and isolated from the sham procedure retinas (Group 1) or the ischemic retinas preadministered with vehicle (Group 2), or low (2.8 g/kg/day; Group 3)/high dose (4.2 g/kg/day) of CJDHW (Group 4)
  2. CJDHW Chi-Ju-Di-Huang-Wan
  3. ** represents significance (P < 0.01; Group 1 vs. 2)
  4. or †† represents significance for Thy-1 (P < 0.05) or significance for MMP-9 (P < 0.01; Group 2 vs. 4), respectively. The findings are presented as the mean ± SD (Thy-1, n = 5; MMP-9, n = 3–4)
