Jian-Pi-Yi-Shen decoction inhibits mitochondria-dependent granulosa cell apoptosis in a rat model of POF


Figure 5. JPYS improved mitochondrial biogenesis and dynamics in premature ovarian failure (POF) rats. Rats were treated with JPYS (11.0 g/kg.d) and pre-treated with triptorelin (1.5 mg/kg) followed by intraperitoneally injected cyclophosphamide (50 mg/kg). We used real-time qPCR and western blot to detect mitochondrial biogenesis and dynamics. We chose OPA1, Mfn1, and Mfn2 to represent mitochondrial biogenesis function, and PGC-1α to represent the dynamic mitochondrial fusion, and Drp1 and Fis1 to represent mitochondrial fission. The expression of OPA1, Mfn1, Mfn2, PGC-1α, Drp1, and Fis1 in mRNA (A) and protein (B) levels. Data are shown as mean ± SD. *p < 0.05 versus control group, #p < 0.05 versus POF group, p < 0.05 versus JPYS group. (n=6).
