Adam10 overexpression suppresses hippocampal neuroinflammation in TLE mice. a Western blotting showing the protein levels of inflammation-related proteins iNOS and COX-2 and NF-κB in the hippocampus of Vehicle Ctrl, AAV-Ctrl, and AAV-Adam10-treated TLE mice. bd Bar graphs showing the quantification of iNOS (F2,12 = 9.86, p = 0.024, AAV-Adam10 vs Vehicle Ctrl; p = 0.003, AAV-Adam10 vs AAV-Ctrl), COX-2 (F2,12 = 11.27, p = 0.003, AAV-Adam10 vs Vehicle Ctrl; p = 0.007, AAV-Adam10 vs AAV-Ctrl), and NF-κB (F2,12 = 11.05, p = 0.004, AAV-Adam10 vs Vehicle Ctrl; p = 0.005, AAV-Adam10 vs AAV-Ctrl), which were represented as the intensity ratios of these proteins to β-actin (n = 5). e, f Bar graphs showing the concentration of IL-1β (F2,12 = 0.59, p = 0.572) and TNF-α (F2,12 = 10.11, p = 0.004, AAV-Adam10 vs Vehicle Ctrl; p = 0.009, AAV-Adam10 vs AAV-Ctrl) in the hippocampus of Ctrl, AAV-Ctrl, and AAV-Adam10-treated TLE mice as detected by ELISA (n = 5). g Representative images of the immunostaining of Iba-1 and GFAP in the hippocampal CA1 region of the Ctrl, AAV-Ctrl, and AAV-Adam10 mice, respectively. h, i Bar graphs showing the quantification of Iba-1- (F2,12 = 7.31, p = 0.012, AAV-Adam10 vs Vehicle Ctrl; p = 0.024, AAV-Adam10 vs AAV-Ctrl) and GFAP (F2,12 = 4.61, p = 0.039, AAV-Adam10 vs Vehicle Ctrl; p = 0.042, AAV-Adam10 vs AAV-Ctrl)-positive cells in the hippocampal CA1 region of the Ctrl, AAV-Ctrl, and AAV-Adam10 mice, respectively (n = 4). *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, and one-way ANOVA.
