Figure 2 Folic acid ameliorates liver fibrosis in the rat model. A: Masson and Sirius red staining in each group. Scale bars: 100 μm; B: Fibrosis score in each group; C-G: Hepatic αSMA, TGFβ1, Col1a1, Col2a1, and Col3a1 in each group. All the data are expressed as the mean ± SE (n = 4-7). aP < 0.05 vs con group; bP < 0.01 vs con group; cP < 0.01 vs HFD group. HFD: High-fat diet; αSMA: α-smooth muscle actin; TGFβ1: Transforming growth factor beta 1; Col1a1: Collagen type I alpha 1; Col2a1: Collagen type II alpha 1; Col3a1: Collagen type III alpha 1.
