Model Evaluation

Behavioral experiment evaluation criteria
1. Motion behavior assessment standard:
0 points: quiet or normal activity;
1 points: over excited;
2 points: increase the behavior of inquiry, non continuous nasal suction;
3 points: keep running;
4 points: stop running with startle.
2. Stereotyped behavior assessment standard: according to the Diamond score
0 points: no stereotyped movement;
1 points: the body rotation behavior (rotation clockwise or counterclockwise);
2 points: head and neck movement up and down too much (an abnormal movement of head and neck and vertical direction);
3 points: head and neck movement up and down too much and rotating motion;
4 points: head to the side of the pendulum, with head and neck movement up and down too much.

Behavioral assessment time: the behavioral experiment was performed every other day for 7 days after modeling, and a total of 5 behavioral tests were performed.

Pathological Results

Cytokines Level

Dopamine(DA), Dopamine receptor 2(D2R):
After the last administration of fasting but free drinking water at night, 5 rats in each group were randomly selected, after the end of the blood into the EDTA anticoagulant tube, frozen centrifugation (3000 rpm, 10 minutes), take the supernatant stored at -80℃.
ELISA kit was used to detect the content of DA and D2R in serum and striatum

Statistical Analysis

SPSS software is used for statistical analysis, measurement data to mean ± standard deviation (x ±s), using t test and single factor analysis of variance for group comparison, P<0.05 indicates there was a significant difference, P<0.01 indicates there are very significant differences.
