A. Effects of PP on secretion of VEGF in Huh7 and Hep3B cells. After the cells were treated by PP with various concentrations of (0, 50 or 100 µg/ml) for 48 hr, the conditioned medium were collected and VEGF level in the conditioned medium was determined by a human VEGF ELISA Kit. The result demonstrated a suppression of VEGF secretion in a dose-dependent manner upon PP treatment. B. MTT assay was performed to evaluate the proliferation when exposure to PP (50 µg/ml) in presence or absence of rhVEGF (0.6 ng/ml) for 72 hr in Huh7 cells. C. Huh7 cells were treated with PP (50 µg/ml) alone or the combination with rhVEGF (0.6 ng/ml), and cell lysate was harvested and applied to western blot. Data are expressed as mean ± SD. Significant differences between the PP-treated and untreated cells were statistically analyzed by ANOVA (Tukey's multiple comparison test; *, P<0.01; **, P<0.001).
