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

Figure 7. TG decreased the phosphorylation level of tau by modulated tau related phosphatase and kinases. (A-D) Western blotting and quantitative analysis of total glucose synthase kinase 3β (GSK3β), phosphorylated GSK3β at Ser9 (GSK3β-pS9) and total protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) (n = 6). No significant difference in the total level of either GSK3β or PP2A among all groups, but the GSK3β-pS9 was significantly high in HHcy and was reduced following TG supplementation. GSK3β (E) and PP2A (F) activity tests (n = 3) revealed an increased GSK3β and a decreased PP2A activity after Hcy which were reversed by both low and high TG treatments. The data were expressed as mean ± SEM. # P < 0.05, ## P < 0.01, #### P <0.0001 versus control; * P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01, **** P < 0.0001 versus HHcy.
