Figure 7: Effects of hinokitiol on the protein expression of caspase-3 in MCAO-induced rat ipsilateral brain hemisphere. Rats are pretreated with hinokitiol (0.2 mg/kg or 0.5 mg/kg) before ischemia and compared with vehicle or sham control. All groups are represented as ipsilateral hemisphere. Data are expressed as the means ± SEM ( ). compared with sham control group; compared with vehicle control group.
