Analysis of ovarian tissue fibrosis-related protein by Western blot. a The expression of α-SMA, Cyp17a1, Collagen I, Collagen III, TGF-β1, Smad3, and p-smad3 in the ovarian tissues of each group. A representative blot from one of three independent experiments is shown. GAPDH was used as the loading control. bh The expression of α-SMA, Cyp17a1, Collagen I, Collagen III, TGF-β1, Smad3, and p-smad3 protein was quantitated using Image J software. Data are expressed as the means ± SD. n = 20, *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, and ***P < 0.001. α-SMA alpha smooth muscle actin, Cyp17a1 Cytochrome P450 17A1, Collagen I Collagen Type I, Collagen III Collagen Type III, TGF-β1 transforming growth factor-β1, GAPDH Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, and SD standard deviation
