Figure 7: Effect of AMPKα inhibitor and mTOR inhibitor on expression of p-AMPKα (Thr172), p-mTOR (Ser2448) in rat mesenteric arteries. (a) Representative blots. (b) Quantification of expression levels of p-AMPKα. (c) Quantification of protein expression levels of p-mTOR. Values were mean ± SEM, n = 5 in each group in measurement. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01 versus MS; ##P < 0.01 versus MS + CIHH. AMPK: Adenosine mono-phosphate-activated protein kinase; mTOR: Mammalian target of rapamycin; MS: Metabolic syndrome; CON: Control; CIHH: Chronic intermittent hypobaric hypoxia.
