Increased mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) activation in the ipsilateral striatum after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). (A) Protein from the striatum was analyzed by western blotting using anti-p-mTOR (Ser 2448). The level of p-mTOR was normalized to the level of tubulin. The p-mTOR significantly increased at 30 minutes after ICH, and returned to basal level at 1 day after ICH. (B) The change in total mTOR was not significant after being normalized to tubulin. *P<0.05; **P<0.001.
