Less microglia and recruited phagocytes in the optic nerve under laquinimod treatment. a Iba1 antibody was used to label all phagocytes and combined with Tmem119 antibody to distinguish between microglia (Tmem+ and Iba1+, turquoise arrowheads) and recruited phagocytes (Tmem and Iba1+, white arrows). b Numbers of phagocytes/mm2. c Numbers of microglia/mm2. d Numbers of infiltrating phagocytes/mm2. All groups showed more infiltrating phagocytes than microglia. e Iba1 and F4/80 antibody to select cells with macrophage function (F4/80+ and Iba1+, pink arrowheads). f Numbers of cells with macrophage function/mm2. Values represent mean ± SD. One-way ANOVA and Tukey post hoc. N = 6–7/group. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001. Scale bars: 20 μm in a, 10 μm in e
