Upregulation of miR-93 and inhibition of LIMK1 improve ventricular remodeling and alleviate cardiac dysfunction in rats with chronic heart failure by inhibiting RhoA/ROCK signaling pathway activation

Figure 1. LIMK1, RhoA and ROCK1 mRNA expression was inhibited by up-regulation of miR-93. (A) miR-93, LIMK1, RhoA and ROCK1 expression levels in myocardial tissues of each group by RT-qPCR; (B) Protein bands of LIMK1, RhoA and ROCK1 in myocardial tissues; (C) LIMK1, RhoA and ROCK1 protein expression in myocardial tissues of all group by western blot assay; * P < 0.05 vs. the sham group; #P < 0.05 vs. the mimics-NC group; & P < 0.05 vs. the siRNA-NC group; $ P < 0.05 vs. the miR-93 mimics + OE-NC group; N = 8; the data is expressed as mean ± standard deviation; the data are analyzed by using one-way ANOVA, and LSD-t method was used for pairwise comparison after ANOVA.
