PPAR-γ Mediates Ta-VNS-Induced Angiogenesis and Subsequent Functional Recovery after Experimental Stroke in Rats

Figure 4

Inhibition of PPAR-γ attenuates the ta-VNS-mediated increase of cerebral microvessel density at 28 d after MCAO/R. (a) CD31 staining shows the cerebral microvessel density around the postinfarct area (). (b) Statistical comparison of the microvessel density in each group ( vs sham+LV-control group, vs I/R+LV-control group, and vs I/R+ta-VNS+LV-control group).
