Figure 6: Changes in messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) expressions of transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β1), Procollagen (Col) α1 (IV), platelet derived growth factor subunit-B (PDGF-B), and connective tissue growth factor (CTGF) in BECs. (a) Biliary epithelial cells (BECs) were removed. (b) TGFβ1, Col-IV, PDGF-B, and CTGF mRNA expressions in BECs detected by real-time polymerase chain reaction. (c) Yin-Chen- Hao-Tang inhibited BECs proCol α1 (IV), PDGF-B, CTGF, and TGF-β1 mRNA expression. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, versus saline + bile duct ligation
