RHcyst-1 affects p38 MAPK and STAT signaling pathways during the differentiation BMDCs. a The mRNA expression of p38 MAPK and STAT signaling pathways during BMDC differentiation after RHcyst-1 treatment was quantified by qRT-PCR. The effect of RHcyst-1 on phosphorylation of p38 MAPK pathway (b) and STAT pathway (c) during BMDCs differentiation was determined by western blot. Student’s t-test was applied and a P-value < 0.05 was considered statistically significant. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001 and NS indicates P > 0.05; bars represent the mean ± SD
