Regulation of the IGF1 signaling pathway is involved in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis induced by alveolar epithelial cell senescence and core fucosylation


Figure 4. AEC senescence was inhibited upon FUT8 knockdown in vitro. (A) SA-β-gal staining was performed to detect cellular senescence of different groups (original magnification, 200×). (B) Representative images of dual staining for FUT8 (green) and P21 (red) staining, FUT8 (green) and P16 (red) staining, LCA (green) and P21 (red) staining and LCA (green) and P16 (red) staining are shown in vitro (original magnification, 200×). Data are shown as the mean ± SEM, n ≥ 3 per group. #P < 0.01, ##P < 0.01. #Indicates the comparison of the control group with the IGF1 group; ##indicates the comparison of the FUT8 siRNA+ IGF1 group with the IGF1 group. One-way ANOVA followed by Dunnett’s Multiple Comparison Test.
