Insulin/IGF1 pathway characterisation in astrocytes. Immunoblots of astrocytes cultured in either serum containing or serum deprived media with additional supplementation from either a recombinant human 1 μM insulin or b 11.2nM recombinant human IGF1. Respresentative images from blots probed with antibodies against IRβ, IGF1Rβ, IRS1, IRS2, pAkt, Total Akt, p44/42 MAPK are shown. *α-tubulin was used as a loading control for blots and a representative loading control is shown. Molecular weight markers are indicated (kDa)
