Figure 3 The effect of calcitriol on the gene expression of apoptosis-related proteins using real-time PCR in B16–F10 cells after 24-h treatment. Cells were treated by calcitriol at 93 (0.24 μM) and 186 ppm (0.48 μM), 60 ppm (0.19 mM) of cisplatin as a positive control and negative control. Relative expression was normalized by GAPDH. Caspase-3, caspase-9, and caspase-8 gene expressions were stimulated, but Bax, Beclin, and RXR alpha did not show significant alteration. Data are presented as average mean and SEM. Significance was considered * P<0.05.
