Fig. 1

Er-NPCs engraft in the recipient’s brain and differentiate in TH-positive neurons. Confocal images of Er-NPCs intrastriatal distribution (green) 14 days after transplantation in the coronal sections taken from Er-NPCs-injected MPTP mouse brains (bars 50 μm). Co-expression of the cytoplasmic protein TH (red) and GFP (green) within a cell suggests dopaminergic differentiation of the transplanted Er-NPCs during migration. The histogram reports the quantification of positive cells to the TH marker in 18 different fields for each condition (n = 6 mice each group; 3 fields for mouse) (see the “Methods” section). Quantification was done by ImageJ picture analysis. *p < 0.05. Data reported in the histogram are expressed as average ± SD and refer to three brains for each experimental condition
