Active compounds of herbs ameliorate impaired cognition in APP/PS1 mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease

Figure 3. Effects of the active compounds containing the effective components of Epimedium, Astragaoside and Puerarin on the mRNA expression levels of the iron uptake protein including DMT1-with IRE, DMT1-without IRE, TF, TfR1, iron release protein including FPN1, CP, HEPH; iron storage protein Ferritin, including Fth and Ftl1 in the cerebral cortex of AD transgenic mice. All data are expressed as the mean ± SD. Inter group differences were compared with multivariate analysis of variance followed by the least significant difference test. (A) P < 0.05, vs. C57; (B) P < 0.05, vs. AD model; (C) P < 0.05, vs. DFO; (D) P < 0.05, vs. Active compounds; (E) P < 0.05, vs. Epimedium; (F) P < 0.05, vs. Astragaoside, P < 0.05, vs. Puerarin.
