BAPTA-AM completely inhibited AGE-induced BDNF release from platelets. Platelet samples (1 × 108 cells/tube) were pretreated with or without 10 μM BAPTA-AM for 5 min, then 100 μg/ml AGE was added to the samples for 5 min. Data were presented as the ratio of released BDNF/(released BDNF + BDNF content) (mean ± SEM). Statistical analyses were performed by SPSS two-way ANOVA with post hoc test. White bars control (0.1% BSA), black bars AGE (100 μg/ml). *p < 0.05 for indicated comparisons
