Fig. 6

Effects of CORM-3 on the expression of PDGFRβ and MMP-9 on day 3 after ischemic stroke. a Representative images show double immunofluorescence staining of PDGFRβ/MMP-9-positive cells in peri-infarction zones. Insets show high-magnification images of the boxed areas. Scale bar = 50 μm. b Quantification of the double immunofluorescence staining (*p < 0.05, n = 8 per group). c Representative Western blot of PDGFRβ and MMP-9 expression in the ipsilateral tissue of each group. d, e Quantification of the Western blot analysis (*p < 0.05 vs. Sham + saline group, #p < 0.05 vs. tMCAO + CORM-3 group, n = 10 per group). Data are shown as mean ± SD
