Figure 3 Oxymatrine liposomes inhibited fibrosis-related gene expression. The expression of fibrosis-related gene, such as MMP-2, TIMP-1 and collagen I was evaluated by real-time polymerase chain reaction. aP < 0.05 vs normal; cP < 0.05 vs CCl4-induced heaptic fibrosis; eP < 0.05 vs oxymatrine liposomes. MMP: Matrix metallopeptidase; TIMP: Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase; OM: Oxymatrine; RGD: Arg-Gly-Asp.
