c-Mpl and TPO expression in the human central nervous system neurons inhibits neuronal apoptosis

Figure 8. TPO demonstrated a protective effect in a CoCl2-induced PC12 cell injury protection model. Cell viability was detected by MTT. Cell apoptosis and mitochondrial membrane potential were detected by flow cytometry. (A) Effect of different concentrations of CoCl2 on viability of PC12 cells. Cells were treated with CoCl2 for 24 h, n = 3. (B) Protective effect of different concentrations of TPO on CoCl2-induced (500 μmol/L) PC12 cells. Cells were treated with TPO for 48 h, n = 3. (C) Protective effect of 100 ng/mL of TPO on CoCl2-induced (500 μmol/L) PC12 cells. (D) Protective effect of 100 ng/mL of TPO on mitochondrial membrane potential of CoCl2-induced (500 μmol/L) PC12 cells. ** P < 0.01.
