Caloric restriction alleviates aging-related fibrosis of kidney through downregulation of miR-21 in extracellular vesicles


Figure 2. Expression of EMT biomarker in the kidneys of three groups. (A) Western blot results for α -SMA, E-cadherin, vimentin protein. (B) Quantitative analysis of band density for α-SMA,E-cadherin, vimentin protein. Data were presented as means ± SD (n=6). * p < 0.05, ** p < 0.01 (OAL vs YAL); Δ p< 0.05, ΔΔ p < 0.01 (OAL vs OCR).
