Compound sophora decoction alleviates ulcerative colitis by regulating macrophage polarization through cGAS inhibition: network pharmacology and experimental validation


Figure 4. CSD inhibits cGAS in macrophages (RAW264.7) and regulates cellular inflammation in vitro. (A) Representative western blot of cGAS; (B) Statistical map of cGAS protein content; (C) cGAS mRNA levels; (D) IFN-β mRNA levels; (E) CCL17 mRNA levels; (F) IL10 mRNA levels; (G) TNF-α mRNA levels; (H) CXCL10 mRNA levels. The data present the mean ± SD of three independent experiments. Abbreviation: ns: no significance. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001 vs. ISD group.
