Figure 6. Effects of CPs on hormone synthesis exposed to busulfan. (A) The representative images of HSD17β1 and CYP17 in the Control, CPs 0.10, B, and B+CPs 0.10 groups. (B) The fluorescence intensity analysis of CYP17 in different groups (Control: 19.28 ± 0.9276, CPs 0.10: 18.97 ± 0.5916, B: 11.8 ± 0.4849, B+CPs 0.10: 22.8 ± 0.8389) (C) The fluorescence intensity analysis of HSD17β1 in different groups (Control: 16.38 ± 0.3876, CPs 0.10: 15.88 ± 0.537, B: 9.892 ± 0.2834, B+CPs 0.10: 20.42 ± 0.6048). The results are presented as mean ± SEM. **P < 0.01.
