In situ hybridization for interleukin (IL)-6 mRNA in lumbar dorsal root ganglia (DRG). Representative sections of in situ hybridization for IL-6 mRNA in (A) lumbar DRG (L-DRG) from naive rat, and in (B–I) ipsilateral (L-DRGi) and contralateral (L-DRGc) DRG from (B–E) rats with chronic constriction injury (CCI) at (B,C) 3 and (D,E) 14 days after surgery, and (F–I) sham-operated rats (F,G) 3 and (H,I) 14 days after surgery. Staining for IL-6 mRNA was present in blood vessels (black arrows), neuronal bodies of various sizes (white arrows), and satellite glial cells (SGC; arrowheads). Scale bars = 50 μm.
