Figure 5: GP increases glucose consumption in DEX-induced C2C12 myotube atrophy by PI3K/Akt pathway. (a) After treatment with GP for 24 h, the levels of p-PI3K/PI3K and p-Akt/Akt in DEX-injured C2C12 myotubes were detected by Western blot analysis. (b) The relative expression of p-PI3K/PI3K was quantified by densitometry analyses. (c) The relative expression of p-Akt/Akt was quantified by densitometry analyses. (d) The relative phosphorylation of AS160 was quantified by Immunofluorescence staining. (e) The relative phosphorylation of AS160 was quantified by densitometry analyses. Data are expressed as the mean ± SD (n = 3); < 0.01 and < 0.001 compared to the control group; # p < 0.05, ## p < 0.01, and ### p < 0.001 compared to the DEX group.
