CEC injury activates cPLA2 in spinal cord tissue. Activation of cPLA2 was measured as the levels of phosphorylated cPLA2 (pcPLA2) in spinal cord tissue from epicenter (E) and rostral (R) regions using western analysis (A) and its densitometry (B). cPLA2 was activated as early as 2 h after CEC, and it remained significantly activated even at 24 h after CEC. Data are presented as mean ± SD (n = 5). *p < 0.05 and ***p < 0.001 vs. rostral (R) region of the spinal cord tissue.
