ROS scavengers rescued the EndMT induced by PSC-Fe2O3. a Intracellular ROS of PSC-Fe2O3 treated HUVECs in the absence and presence of mannitol or AA. b The level of VE-cad, CD31, α-SMA and FSP determined by western blot. c Expression of VE-cad (green), CD31 (green), α-SMA (red) and FSP (red) for HUVECs by confocal microscopy. Data are mean ± SD, n = 3, one-way ANOVA with Fisher’s least significant difference test (LSD-t), ** p < 0.01, significant compared to control
