From: GPR34 in spinal microglia exacerbates neuropathic pain in mice

Fig. 1

GPR34 expression is induced in microglia in the spinal dorsal horn after L4 nerve injury. a qRT-PCR analysis of GPR34 mRNA in the ipsilateral L4 dorsal horn of WT mice before (Naive) and after L4 nerve injury. Results are normalized to the housekeeping gene GAPDH (n = 4 for each time point). Values are mean ± SEM. Data are shown as fold change over naive sample. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01 (one-way ANOVA with post hoc Tukey’s test). b, c In situ hybridization shows increased GPR34 mRNA expression in the spinal dorsal horn 7 days after L4 nerve injury (low-magnification images). Contra contralateral side, Ipsi ipsilateral side. Scale bar = 200 μm. df Localization of GPR34 mRNA in microglia in the ipsilateral dorsal horn (high-magnification images). Hybridized cells (d) display IRF8 immunoreactivity (e) in their nuclei (arrows). Scale bar = 30 μm
