Figure 5: Immunohistochemical evidence of PSA-NCAM expression alterations in the left cortex one week following injury. (a) Sham animals demonstrate subtle, uniform PSA-NCAM staining in the left cortex one week following craniectomy. (b) PSA-NCAM expression in the ipsilateral cortex of moderate injury animals is significantly increased with particularly dark staining of cells that display the appearance of reactive astrocytes (arrows). Images are 20(x) magnification; scale bar = 300 μm.
