Figure 5 Western blot for detecting Nrf2-ARE pathway- and apoptosis-related protein expression in brain tissues of MCAO rat models. (A) Representative images for western blot results. The expression of Nrf2-ARE pathway-related proteins including (B) Nrf2 (C) NQO1, (D) GCLM, (E) HO-1, (F) GCLC and apoptosis-related proteins including (G) BAX, (H) CASP3, (I) CASP9, and (J) Bcl-2 was quantified according to the western blots. * p<0.01, *** p<0.001, ****p<0.0001.
