Effect of MMF and FK506 on CTGF expression in renal allografts.(A) Relative mRNA levels were determined by real-time PCR 4, 8, and 12 weeks after transplantation and normalized to the housekeeping gene GAPDH. Values are shown as mean ± SD from three independent experiments. *Significant difference compared with the control group (p < 0.05). (B) CTGF protein levels were determined by western blot and GAPDH was used as a housekeeping gene.
