  1. Animals were first divided by age (3 or 12-months old) and injury type (naïve or injured). Functional analysis was performed on all animals in study. Animals used in function experiments were sacrificed and divided into subgroups for tissue experiments (immunohistochemistry, lesion volume, and biochemistry/PCR)
