Figure 4. 3C inhibits macrophage polarization and foam cell formation. (A) Fold change of iNOS, COX-2 and CD206 mRNA expression level. β-Actin was used for sample loading normalization. (B) 3C dose-dependently attenuate ox-LDL induced foam cell formation. (C) Quantification of the lipid disposition area versus the cellular area. All experiments were performed at least three times; were assessed using Student’s t-test and are present as mean±SEM. *P<0.05; **P<0.01.
