CircSMAD4 overexpression alleviated HG-induced SV40-MES13 cell inflammation, ECM deposition and cell apoptosis by impairing miR-377-3p expression. AG SV40-MES13 cells treated with HG were transfected with circSMAD4 or circSMAD4 + miR-377-3p. A–D The releases of IFN-γ, MCP-1, IL-6 and TNF-α in medium were determined by ELISA. E The protein levels of fibronectin and collagen IV were measured by western blot. F Cell apoptosis was assessed by flow cytometry assay. G The protein levels of Bcl-2 and Bax were measured by western blot. *P < 0.05
