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