Effect of aripiprazole on c-Fos expression in C57BL/6 mouse prefrontal cortex and striatum. Representative blots (A) prefrontal cortex and (C) striatum indicate immunoreactive bands of c-Fos (upper panel) and β-Actin (lower panel) expression following aripiprazole (1 mg/kg) treatment and correspond with the bar graph below. (B) Aripiprazole treatment over a 24 hr period - prefrontal cortex. (D) Aripiprazole treatment over a 24 hr period - striatum. At each time point treated samples were expressed relative to vehicle control standardized to 100 percent. Data represent the mean ± SEM of at least four mice per experimental group. *p < 0.05; **p < 0.01; ***p < 0.001, statistical differences between tissue in the absence (vehicle) and presence of aripiprazole are indicated.
