Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress Is Associated with the Mesencephalic Dopaminergic Neuron Injury in Stressed Rats
Expression changes of coexisted GRP78 and TH in the VTA. (a) Confocal images showing coronal section n of VTA immunofluorescence labelled for TH (green), GRP78 (red), DAPI (blue), and merged (orange/yellow). μm. (b) Quantitative analysis of the number of GRP78+-TH+ cells (). Data are shown as . Significantly different after stress exposure by one-way ANOVA (). (c) Western blot analysis of GRP78 expression in the VTA. VTA: ventral tegmental area; RS+IS: restraint stress plus ice-water swimming group.
