Lowered levels of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors and elevated apoptosis in the hippocampus of brains from patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and db/db mice

Figure 8. Correlation between nAChR subunits and Bcl-2/Bax ratio, Syn or Snap-25 in the hippocampus of db/db mouse brains. (A13) the correlation between α7 and Bcl-2/Bax, Syn or Snap-25; (B13) the correlation between α4 and Bcl-2/Bax, Syn or Snap-25. The values presented are mean ± SEM (n=8) as determined with the Pearson correlation test.
