Effects of ACT and AVP on astrocyte damage.

<p>(A) Astrocyte cells were co-stained with Hoechst 33342 and PI. Cells were treated with AVP (100 nM) and combination with ACT (0.5 mg/ml) and AVP for 48 h. (B) Percentages of cell death were calculated by determining the ratio of PI-stained cells to Hoechst stained cells. Bars indicate the mean ± standard error of the mean (<i>n</i> = 3). *<i>p</i> < 0.05, in comparison to control.</p>
