EA reduced the astrogliosis in the midbrain of A53T mice. a Immunofluorescent images illustrating effects of EA on GFAP immunostaining in the SN of A53T and control nTg mice. GFAP-containing astrocytes were visualized by GFAP immunostaining. b Immunoblots illustrating the effects of EA on GFAP protein expression in the midbrain. Representative immunoblots are shown above the quantified data. c and d Effects of EA on GFAP mRNA expression in the midbrain (c) and striatum (d) of A53T and control nTg mice. α-syn mRNAs were detected determined by quantitative real-time PCR. Data are expressed by means ± SEM (n = 4 per group). **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001 vs. nTg group. #P < 0.05, ###P < 0.001 vs. A53T group
