Cerebral synaptosomal proteins changed by antipurinergic therapy with suramin. (A) Phosphoinositol trisphosphate kinase (PI3K). (B) Akt (protein kinase B). (C) Serine 9 phosphorylation of glycogen synthase kinase (pGSK3β). (D) Phosphorylation ratio of glycogen synthase kinase 3β (pGSK3β/GSK3β). (E) Phosphorylated of ribosomal protein S6 Kinase (pS6K). (F) Phosphorylation ratio of pS6K/S6K. (G) Adenomatous polyposis coli (APC). (H) Purinergic receptor P2X3 (P2X3R). (I) Purinergic receptor P2Y1 (P2Y1R). (J) Inositol trisphosphate receptor (IP3R). (K) Glutamate receptor 1 (GluR1, also known as the AMPA receptor). (L) Cannabinoid receptor 1 (CB1). (M) Peroxisome proliferator activated receptor β (PPARβ, also known as PPARδ). (N) 7-Dehydrocholesterol dehydrogenase (7-DHCR). (O) Cholesterol 7α-hydroxylase (CYP7A1). (P) Steroidogenic acute response protein (StAR). (Q) Activated complement protein C1q (C1qA). (R) TAR DNA binding protein 43 (TDP43). (S) Amyloid-β precursor protein (APP). Age = 25 weeks, N = 5 per group. Values are expressed as means +/- SEM.
