Figure 2

Protein levels of Bad (A) and Bax (B) in frontal cortex of control rats (n = 8) and of chronic NMDA-treated rats (n = 8), measured using immunoblot. Optical densities of immunoblot bands were normalized to b-actin to correct for unequal loading. Values are expressed as percent of control. Data are expressed as means ± SEM, *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01. mRNA levels of Bad (C) and Bax (D) in frontal cortex of control rats (n = 6) and of chronic NMDA-treated rats (n = 6), measured using RT-PCR. Data are expressed as mRNA level in frontal cortex of chronic NMDA administered rats, normalized to the endogenous level of β-globulin mRNA, and relative to the control (calibrator), using the ΔΔCT method (means ± SEM, *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01).
