BBR + DDP combination enhanced Caspase3 and Caspase8 activities. OVCAR3 cells and POCCLs were treated with BBR (100 μM) and/or DDP (5 mg/L) for 24 h. The expression levels of Caspase3, Caspase8, cleaved Caspase3 and cleaved Caspase8 in BBR and/or DDP-treated cells was detected by qRT-PCR (a, c) and Western blot (b, d). Immunofluorescence assay (e, f) also showed that the expression levels and subcellular localization of cleaved Caspase8 (Clv C8) and cleaved Caspase3 (Clv C3) in OVCAR3 cells. Data were based on at least three independent experiments, and shown as mean ± SEM. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01 compared with NC; #p < 0.05, ##p < 0.01 compared with BBR; &p < 0.05, &&p < 0.01 compared with DDP
