Glioprotective Effects of Ashwagandha Leaf Extract against Lead Induced Toxicity
(a) Representative Western blots for HSP-70 expression and α-tubulin for different brain regions hippocampus, hypothalamus, and cortex from control (C), lead nitrate (LN), and lead nitrate and Ashwagandha (LN + AS) treated rats. Relative expression levels of HSP-70 normalized against α-tubulin were plotted as histograms. (b) Representative Western blots for HSP-70 expression and α-tubulin from different peripheral organs: heart, kidney, and liver from control and treatment groups. Histograms represent expression levels of HSP-70 normalized against α-tubulin. Data are calculated and represented as the mean ± SEM ( = 4-5). was considered significant. “” represents significant difference between C and other groups and “#” represents significant difference between LN and LN + AS groups.
