The Activator Mastoparan-7 Promotes Dendritic Spine Formation in Hippocampal Neurons

Figure 5

Mas-7 induced spinogenesis through the activation of CaMKII. (a) Left panel, representative images of 14 DIV hippocampal neurons untreated (control) or treated with or without Mas-7 for 2 h and coincubated with KN93. Right panel, representative 3D reconstructions. (b) Quantification of dendritic spine density for all of the conditions (). Scale bar = 5 μm. . ns = no significant difference.
