Results of 2 and 3 days of strain on the gene expression of Gls a and Got1 b, as seen by qPCR, and the protein content of NMDAR1 as seen by densitometry of western blot c. After 2 days, there was a slight increase of Gls and Got1 mRNA a, b. After 3 days this increase is more pronounced a, b. NMDAR1 is reduced after 2 days and slightly, but not significantly, increased after 3 days c. Asterisks mark significance for outcome in relation to the control (CTR). Error bars show standard deviation. (* p < 0.05; ** p < 0.01; *** p < 0.001). n = 3
