Influence of QC overexpression on pE3-Aβ formation. Staining of striatal sections of transgenic E8-hQC mice demonstrated an increase of pE3-Aβ positive cells by het and hom hQC overexpression, respectively at the age of 3 months (A) and 6 months (B). Quantification of these pE3-Aβ positive cells revealed a significant increase for het and hom overexpression of hQC in homs E8 animals at the age of 6 months and in het/het E85 animals at the age of 7 months (C); E8 were analyzed by one-way ANOVA followed by Newman-Keuls post-hoc test; E85 were analyzed by unpaired t-test; data represent means ± SEM; * p < 0.05; *** p < 0.001; n = 7–11 animals per group. Quantification of pE3-Aβ levels by ELISA revealed a significant increase for het and hom overexpression of hQC in hom E8 brains at the age of 6 months and in het/het E85 brains at the age of 7 months (D); E8 were analyzed by one-way ANOVA followed by Newman-Keuls post-hoc test; E85 were analyzed by unpaired t-test; data represent means ± SEM; ** p < 0.01; *** p < 0.001; n = 5–11 animals per group.
