The expression of nNOS,HIF-1α and VEGF in rats with sham or renal ablation/infarction (A/I) operation.4 weeks after sham or 5/6 ablation/infarction (A/I) operation, SD rats were treated with vehicle or 100 mg/kg MLB by i.p. once daily for another 8 weeks. Kidney tissues were collected after sacrifice and protein analysis was performed by Western blotting. The expression of nNOS (a), HIF-1α (b) and VEGF (c) in renal medulla and cortex. Representative images of immunohistochemical staining of VEGF in rat kidneys (d). One representative of three independent experiments is shown. The result of Western blotting was quantified by densitometry. Data represent mean ± SE
