Methanolic extract of Tamarix Gallica attenuates hyperhomocysteinemia induced AD-like pathology and cognitive impairments in rats

Figure 4. TG supplementation attenuated the decrease of memory-related proteins. (A) Levels of synapsin 1 and PSD95 were detected using western blotting technique in the hippocampus and β-actin was used as loading control. (B and C) Quantitative analysis of the blots showed that Hcy dramatically decreased the expression of these synaptic proteins in the hippocampus when compared with control group, and treatment with TG reversed these effects. The data were expressed as mean ± SEM (n = 6). # P < 0.05, ## P < 0.01 versus control; * P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01 versus HHcy.
