Figure 7

The gene expression of sypnatic formation proteins in the hippocampal tissue of ovariectomized rats. The gene expression of sypnatic formation proteins in the hippocampal tissue of ovariectomized rats fed on the control diet (white), or the control diet supplemented with 0.4 g/kg phytoestrogens (white spotted), 1.6 g/kg phytoestrogens (grey spotted), or 0.15 g/kg 17╬▓estradiol (dark grey). The upper panel showed the PCR image and the lower panel presented the levels of mRNA of sypnatic formation proteins expressed as the ratio to the internal control of GADPH mRNA. The mean values labelled with different letters differed significantly (p < 0.05).
