Figure 3: Effect of chronic intermittent hypobaric hypoxia on the expression level of p-AMPKα (Thr172), and p-mTOR (Ser2448) in mesenteric arteries. (a) Representative blots. (b) Quantification of protein expression levels of p-AMPK. (c) Quantification of protein expression levels of p-mTOR. Values were mean ± SEM, n = 4 in each group. **P < 0.01 versus CON, ##P < 0.01 versus MS. MS: Metabolic syndrome; CON: Control; AMPK: Adenosine mono-phosphate-activated protein kinase; mTOR: Mammalian target of rapamycin.
