Effect of riluzole on astrocyte protein expression in the striata of animals bearing a 6-OHDA lesion. Western blots were quantified, and band density of GFAP and GLT-1 calculated relative to the housekeeping protein, β-tubulin. Graphs show the relative expression levels of each of these proteins on the intact side (open bars) and lesioned side (filled bars) in 6-OHDA lesioned animals ± SEM (n = 8-9) ** = p < 0.01 compared to vehicle-treated intact side, † = p < 0.05 compared to vehicle-treated lesioned side.
