Figure 2: Representative figure of total PDH enzyme determined by dipstick test in blood and brain of rats with TBI. Dipsticks are of white color stripes and were placed on a paper with yellow background to increase the contrast. On left side, data of PDH protein bands are from blood samples collected at 72 h. Brain PDH levels were determined at 72-h post-injury periods. Note that in comparison to sham, amount of PDH was significantly reduced in TBI controls and pyruvate prevented its loss, although less visible in blood than brain tissue. These results are consistent with the lactate/pyruvate ratio and glucose levels in blood samples at 72 hcomparisons
