Objective: To delineate the molecular mechanisms of medicinal leech extract in the treatment of cardiac hypertrophy and fibrosis, using both in vitro and in vivo assessments.
Summary: Pre-treatment with leech extract significantly reduced angiotensin II (ANG II)-induced cardiac hypertrophy and fibrosis.
Usage: Western blot; PVDF membranes were incubated with Anti-AT-1R.
