Fig. 4. HucMSC-ex-Galectin-3 promoted the differentiation of cardiac fibroblasts into myofibroblasts. Car-diac fibroblasts were treated with LPS (100 ng/ml), LPS+hucMSC-ex (200 μg/ml), LPS+hucMSC-NC-ex (200 μg/ml), or LPS+hucMSC-si-ex (200 μg/ml) for 24 h. (A) Collagen I, Periostin, and α-SMA levels were detected by western blot. (B) Two days after myocardial infarction was induced in SD rats, Collagen I, Periostin, and α-SMA expression in the infarcted area were detected by immunohistochemistry. Scale bar= 20 μm. *p<0.05, **p<0.01, and ***p<0.001.
