Fig. 2. Curcumin promotes the activation of PI3K/Akt signaling pathway and VEGF expression in neonatal rats with brain HI damage (n = 12 per group). (A) Band intensities from western blots were calculated. (B) The protein expression of p-PI3K, PI3K, p-Akt, Akt, and VEGF in the sham, HI, and HI + CUR groups by western blotting. HI, hypoxic-ischemic injury; CUR, curcumin; VEGF, vascular endothelial growth factor; GAPDH, glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase. **p < 0.01 vs. sham group; ##p < 0.01 vs. HI group.
