Supplementary Material

Mulberry fruit extracts (ME) contain high amounts of anthocyanins. The supplementary material involved in the preparation processes of mulberry extracts and determination of total anthocyanins content. Mulberries and their major neuroprotective compound—C3G (cyanidin-3-O-β-D-glucopyranoside) have demonstrated the neuroprotective effect on a cerebral infarction in mouse brain injury model and H2O2-induce oxidative damage in PC12 cells. Yet few studies have used mulberry fruit extracts (mixture) as the only intervention substance to investigate cytoprotective and neuroprotective effects on Aβ25-35-induced injury model in PC12 cells. So this supplementary material also involved in the morphological shapes of PC12 cells induced by NGF and the morphological shapes of differentiated PC12 cells in different treatment groups. To explore mechanisms involved, we use the genomic techniques to quickly and accurately quantify vast numbers of potential gene expressions. Table 5 and 6 in supplementary material illustrated the significantly changed genes in PC12 cells after different treatment.
