MSC treatment ameliorated TGF-β1/Smad signaling pathway in adenine-induced rats by western blot analysis of α-SMA, p-Smad2/3, Smad2/3, and TGF-β1 in kidney tissues (A). The statistical graph shows the densitometric analysis of TGF-β1 (B), α-SMA (C), and p-Smad2/3 vs. Smad2/3 (D) expression normalized to β-actin expression. All experiments were repeated at least 3 times, and similar results were obtained each time. N = 3 (per group), data are presented as mean ± SD, analyzed by one-way ANOVA followed by Bonferroni post hoc testing. *P < 0.05, vs. control group. #P < 0.05 vs. adenine group
