Figure 3. Protein ratio of A, phosphorylated serine-threonine protein kinase (pAkt)/Akt, of B, phosphorylated forkhead-O1 (pFoxO1)/FoxO1, and of C, phosphorylated extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 (pErk1/2)/Erk1/2 in pancreatic islets from rats receiving a normal-protein diet (NP) and a low-protein diet (LP). A representative control blot for α-tubulin is shown below each panel. Data are reported as means ± SEM for 5 independent experiments. *P < 0.05 compared to NP (Student t-test).
