Figure 4: Effects of CF on Bcl-2, Bax and Fas levels in AGS cells. (a) Bcl-2 levels were gradually reduced by CF, whereas Bax levels were gradually increased, as shown by western blotting. (b) Bcl-2 and (c) Bax protein levels were normalized to those of βactin. (d) Fas and FasL expression levels were both upregulated by CF, as shown by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. Results are presented as the means ± standard error means. **P < 0.01 versus untreated controls. β-Actin was used as the loading control. CF: Carthami flos; CTRL: Control
