TGF-β1-stimulated upregulation of VCAM-1 is dependent on Smad pathway. The silence efficiency of si-Smad3 was confirmed by western blot assay (a). Endometriotic cyst stromal cells were transfected with si-Smad3, and then treated with recombinant human TGF-β1 (10 ng/mL) for 48 h. Cells were harvested for western blot assay (b). **P < 0.01 and ***P < 0.001
