Figure 5: Immunohistochemical analysis of excitatory synapses in wildtype and prestin KO animals. (a) Labeling of puncta positive for the excitatory marker PSD-95 in layer 2/3 of A1. (b) Density of PSD-95+ puncta did not differ significantly between WT ( 𝑛 = 3 ) and KO ( 𝑛 = 3 ) mice in L2/3 of A1 ( 𝑃 > . 0 5 ). (c) The size of PSD-95+ puncta is significantly greater in KO versus WT in L2/3 of A1 ( 𝑃 = . 0 1 5 ). (d) PSD-95+ puncta in layer 4 of A1. (e) Density of PSD-95+ puncta did not differ significantly between WT ( 𝑛 = 3 ) and KO ( 𝑛 = 3 ) mice in L4 of A1 ( 𝑃 > . 0 5 ). (f) The size of PSD-95+ puncta did not differ significantly between WT and KO mice in L4 of A1 ( 𝑃 > . 0 5 ). Scale bars: 10 μm.
