Impacts of ADSCs-Exo on high glucose-induced MPC5 cells apoptosis. a MPC5 cells viability was evaluated through CCK8 assay under the condition of normal glucose (NG), mannitol (MA), high glucose (HG), and concentration gradient ADSCs-Exo for 24 h, 48 h, 72 h, and 96 h. b Expression examination of caspase3 and cleaved-caspase3 in MPC5 cells by western blotting. c Relative quantitative analysis of caspase3 and cleaved-caspase3 in NG/MA/HG/ADSCs-Exo treated MPC5 cells. d Apoptotic MPC5 cells were determined by flow cytometry. e Relative apoptosis rate of MPC5 cells under the treatment of NG/MA/HG/ADSCs-Exo. NG indicates 5.5 mM d-glucose. MA indicates 5.5 mM d-glucose+ 24.5 mM mannitol. HG indicates 30 mM d-glucose. **p < 0.01
