Knockdown of ZFAS1 improved the cardiac function of myocardial infarction rats via regulating Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway

Promotion of Wnt/β-catenin pathway by shZFAS1 in the MI rats. (A) The protein expression of β-catenin and GSK-3β in the myocardial tissues was measured. (B) Influence of shZFAS1 on the protein expression of β-catenin and GSK-3β in the myocardial tissues. (C) Influence of shZFAS1 on the mRNA levels of β-catenin and GSK-3β in the myocardial tissues. (D) The expression of β-catenin and GSK-3β in the myocardial tissues were measured using IHC staining (Scale bar = 500 μm). (E) Influence of shZFAS1 on β-catenin and GSK-3β in the myocardial tissues. *P #P
