Figure 7: Glucose transporter type 1 and glucose transporter type 4 protein expression by insulin, Astraeus odoratus extract (AO) and Astraeus asiaticus extract (AA). Glucose uptake stimulation in the presence of 50 nM insulin, 100 μg/mL AO, and 200 μg/mL AA were 78.80%, 78.76%; and 78.4%, respectively, higher than that of basal. (a) Western blotting of glucose transporter type 1 and glucose transporter type 4 protein of basal and the treatments of 50 mM insulin, 100 μg/mL AO, and 200 μg/mL AA. Actin was used as a control. (b) Signal intensity of glucose transporter type 1 and glucose transporter type 4; (c) Signal intensity of glucose transporter type 1 and glucose transporter type 4 presented as fold of basal. **P < 0.01 versus basal glucose transporter type 1 at 50 h; ##P < 0.01 versus basal glucose transporter type 4 at 50 h; n = 3
