Cannabinoid oral administration did not alter GFAP immunostaining or protein expression. GFAP hippocampal immunostaining (IR) or cerebral cortical protein expression was similar in all groups, irrespective of genotype or treatment. A: representative IR in hippocampus from wild type and Tg APP mice treated with vehicle or cannabinoids. The area assessed is shown (5 hippocampal areas) B: Optical density (OD) was measured by densitometry. C: representative GFAP Western blot (WB) and D: optical density (OD) in cortical samples. Animals were treated with vehicle or cannabinoids (0.2 mg/kg) in the drinking water for 4 months, starting at 7 months of age. Results are mean ± SEM (n = 6-7 mice/group).
