Curdione treatment inhibited fibroblast differentiation. a Analysis of HPFs differentiation after TGF-β stimulation. Left panel: representative western blot results for fibronectin, collagen 1 and α-SMA. Right panel: bar graphic figure for western blot. b-d RT-PCR analysis of the expression of fibronectin, collagen 1 and α-SMA. e Immunostaining of fibronectin, collagen 1 and α-SMA expression. Images were taken under original magnification × 400. Figures showing the data with three replications. Experimental results were expressed as mean ± standard deviation. The data were analysed by one-way ANOVA. *P < 0.05; **P < 0.01; ***P < 0.001
