Effects of DAPT on microglial activation, inflammatory factors production, brain edema, neurobehavioral deficits, and neuronal degeneration in SAH rats. Representative images of Iba1- and CD68-positive microglia in the Sham, SAH + DMSO, and SAH + DAPT groups (a). ELISA results indicating the levels of the pro-inflammatory factors IL-1β (b), IL-6 (c), and TNF-α (d) and the anti-inflammatory factor IL-10 (e) in the ipsilateral cerebral tissue at 24 h post-SAH; n = 6 in each group. DAPT treatment markedly reduced BWC (f) (n = 6/group) in the left hemisphere and increased modified Garcia score (g) (n = 12/group). Representative FJC and NeuN staining images (h) and quantitative analysis of FJC-positive cells (i) (n = 6/group) in the left cortex after SAH with DAPT or DMSO treatment. Data are expressed as the mean ± SEM. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001 versus Sham, #P < 0.05, ##P < 0.01, ###P < 0.001 versus SAH + DMSO group. Scale bar = 50 μm
